Seedstars Migration Challenge 2020 for Socially Driven Startups

Apply for Seedstars Migration Challenge

Seedstars is the leading emerging market start-up community and investor and now is announcing Seedstars Migration Challenge. It works in partnership with the International Organisation of Employers, the largest network of the private sector in the world.

The IOE represents the interests of employers in social and labour matters at the international level.

The solutions should assist with better matching of employment sectors facing skills shortages with trained regular migrant workers – expats, temporary workers, seasonal workers, or intra-company transferees.

The solutions should also provide ways for governments to share information and best practices to improve their policies.

Finally, they should provide migrant workers with access to financial, educational, labor mobility services. The winning startup will get a 3-months acceleration scholarship for Seedstars’ IRP.

The deadline is on 25 August 2020.


Main criteria

  • The startup must be an existing solution under 4 years of existence
  • The startup must be a pre-seed, seed, or early-stage start-up with a minimum viable product and have a maximum of USD 500,000 of funding to date
  • Primary users of the product should be governments, employers and migrant workers
