SeedStars World is finally coming to Saudi Arabia with the promise to organize a high-quality, intense boot camp in collaboration with the MiSK Innovation. The three-day boot camp will comprise of many activities including active pitching sessions, closed-door mentoring sessions, and panel discussions.
The boot camp will be held separately in four different cities: Dammam (Sep 13 -15); Abha (Sep 20 – 22); Jeddah (Sep 27 – 29); and Riyadh (Oct 4 – 7). The last dates for sending your application for the boot camps in these four cities are Sep 10, Sep 13, Sep 15, and Sep 23 respectively.
Remember that with the kind of reputation the Seedstars brand name carries, it is likely that the number of applicants will be very high. Therefore, Seedstars and MiSK Innovation will appoint a panel of experts to shortlist 15 promising seed-stage startups.As the boot camp kicks off, these selected startups will receive mentoring from top-notch regional and global experts in various disciplines including growth strategy, pitching, and acquisitions.
The first two days of the boot camp will be held behind closed doors, whereas the third and final day will be made open to the public. All 15 of the startups will require giving a three-minute pitch each (in English), following which there will be a five-minute-long Q&A session with the judges.
The top-two startups will get a chance to participate at the Seedstars World Saudi Arabia finals in Riyadh. The top-four finalists at that mega event will win cash rewards of up to 100,000 SAR in addition to an all-inclusive trip to Lausanne during the next edition of Seedstars Summit.
