Emerging markets : opportunities and support for Vaud-based start-up and SMEs

The Office for Economic Affairs of the State of Vaud (SPECo) and Seedstars would like to invite you to participate to the following kick-off event :

« Emerging markets : opportunities and support for Vaud-based start-up and SMEs »
October 27th 2016, 10h00-13h00 @ CVCI, Lausanne
REGISTER NOW – Deadline for application: 30th September, 2016

In collaboration with Innovaud, Lausanne Région and CVCI, the SPECo has partnered with Seedstars in order to provide your company with further networking and expansion opportunities in emerging markets (http://vaud.seedstarsworld.com/). Seedstars is a Swiss organisation which mission is to support, build and invest in the top tech entrepreneurs in emerging markets and collaborate with institutions dedicated to innovation and entrepreneurship.

As you already may know, 57% of the Global GDP and 85% of the world’s population are located in emerging markets (source: IMF). We believe it is fundamental that our companies get access to these high growth opportunities.

You will find below the programme that SPECo and Seedstars have put in place for Vaud-based start-up and SMEs :

  1. Seedstars Delegation: 3-day ecosystem tours in your target market, where we host and organise meetings with key stakeholders tailored to your needs.
  2. Seedstars Summit: free access to the Seedstars Summit held on the 1st week of April 2017 where over 1000+ top investors, entrepreneurs, corporate executives and start-up ecosystem facilitators (accelerators/incubators) will get together in Lausanne.
  3. Seedstars Advisory & Insights: access the Seedstars network of experts in over 60 markets, where they can support you in getting clarity on your innovation program and get practical intelligence to inform strategic decisions such as what innovation to focus on, which market to enter and how to enter.
