The Seedstars Africa Summit, a technology and entrepreneurship forum for emerging markets, is coming to Mozambique! The summit will be held in Maputo from the 11th to the 14th of December, 2017.

Seedstars World (SSW), the  global community and platform for entrepreneurs in technology in emerging markets and fast-growing startup scenes, is hosting Seedstars Summit, the third of the annual Africa Summit that connects the most relevant players in innovation and technology with the world and between each other. Tickets are available now on www.seedstarsworld.com.

After hosting competitions in 25 African countries throughout 2017, identifying the most promising startups and analyzing the local ecosystems, Seedstars World is now bringing together the best and most promising entrepreneurs with ecosystem players, mentors, investors, corporates and other entrepreneurs across the continent. The event is hosted by local ambassador organisation UX Information Technologies and supported by local and international partners such as Enel, Merck, Orange, Microsoft, the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, the Embassy of Switzerland and Standard Bank amongst others.

The Africa Regional Summit will last for 3 days and bring together over 800 attendees commencing with a bootcamp for the participating startups, an ecosystem tour, investor day and culminate with a Conference and Pitch event on December 14th that will feature the startup pitches, keynotes, and panel discussions that will engage a range of topics and ideas pertinent to entrepreneurs in the region.

“We have been on a long and interesting journey when it comes to entrepreneurship and technology in emerging markets. As part of the Seedstars DNA we want to be on the ground working directly with startups, corporates and other stakeholders. This is exactly the reason why we are travelling to 88+ ecosystems globally this year over 20 countries in Africa. We are very excited to be able to bring the entire network together in Mozambique later this year and together look into some of the opportunities of the continent and explore how technologies can rapidly improve the current status quo in emerging markets worldwide.” says Claudia Makadristo, Regional Manager for Africa.

“We are very honored to host the 3rd edition of Seedstars Regional Summit in Africa, following the steps of Morocco and Rwanda, and finally bringing the Summit to Maputo. The Seedstars network is very solution oriented and we believe the Regional Summit is the perfect environment to bring together the best startups on the continent to exchange experiences from our individual markets and brainstorm truly applicable solutions for problems facing emerging markets, both on the continent and globally. It’ll also be a unique opportunity, not only for our international visitors to get first hand contact with the local tech and entrepreneurship scene and give them a chance to introduce their products and services to the Mozambican market, but it’ll also be a great opportunity for the local brands, sponsors and entrepreneurs who will be attending the 3 day activities to get to know what’s going on in the rest of the continent and also expose their products and services to a larger audience.”, says Tiago Borges Coelho, Co-Founder of UX, local Ambassadors to Seedstars.
