Seedstars World is coming to Sydney and we’re front and centre!

I’m delighted to share that Deloitte Private will be partnering with Seedstars World – the Geneva based exclusive start up competition for emerging markets and fast-growing start up scenes as well as one of the fastest-growing networks for tech entrepreneurs in the world.

Weʼre attracted by the global reach and impact of Seedstars World and are proud to be the local sponsor and host for the Sydney event supporting local start-ups, which are crucial for the future of Australian business and innovation. We will share this honour along with high calibre regional and international organisations including General Assembly, LawPath, Stripe90 Seconds and Capital Pitch in Sydney this year on  Saturday, July 18th.

In addition to the impressive sponsorship list, the judging panel for the event will consist of Craig Blair from AirTree Ventures, Rui Rodrigues, the Managing Partner at Tankstream, Garry Visontay, the General Partner at Sydney Seed Fund, Andrea Kowalski, the Investment Director at Balidor Investment Management and Entrepreneur Dean McEvoy.

Seedstars is the global seed-stage startup competition for emerging markets and fast-growing startup scenes. Its goal is to put the spotlight on entrepreneurs from emerging countries, the winners of which are invited back to Switzerland to pitch at the final event in February 2016.

This year is going to be an exciting one for Seedstars World. Along with the new partnerships, there are more prizes, equating to a total of at $1.5M USD

Seedstars World is looking for smart startups that solve regional issues and/or develop profitable products for the global market. Seedstars World identifies fast-growing and pioneering startup scenes and is on the mission to support regional businesses and their growth by connecting investors to the next generation of startup entrepreneurs.

Last yearʼs winner of Seedstars Sydney GoFar – which makes gadgets for cars that motivate the drivers to drive up to 22% more efficiently, cut emissions, accidents and time in traffic, has been incredibly successful since then and has raised 320% of its goal on Kickstarter.

We’re very excited about the event this Saturday and hope to see you there – check out their website for more information:
