“It has been inspiring seeing entrepreneurs from across the region soldier on through the pandemic and continue to work hard on their solutions. We have met incredible entrepreneurs and are excited to see them competing at the regional stage for a chance to be at the Seedstars Grande Finale in 2021. We wish all the local winners the best of luck for the regional stage competition.”

The regional stage of Seedstars will include a 1-month long Investment Readiness Program. Startups will get modernized and personalised advice and assistance to ensure that they are prepared for all that comes with investment. The program will consist of:

  • Action driven webinars on key business metrics
  • Online office hours where startups can discuss the problems they are facing
  • 1-on-1 mentoring sessions
  • Investor meetings for potential funding opportunities
  • peer-to-peer learning and networking sessions

The regionals will be aired at the end of January 2021 and viewers will be able to see all the pitches from all the local winners.

We would like to wish Phenomenon Technologies all the very best at Seedstars Regionals.
