SEEDSTARS WORLD IS COMING TO AMMAN TO FIND THE BEST STARTUP IN JORDAN
On August 7th, Jordan’s best startups will compete to represent the country at the Seedstars World competition and win up to 500’000 USD in equity.
Seedstars World, the global seed-stage startup competition for emerging markets and fast-growing startup scenes, is returning to Amman on August 7th, 2016 at Oasis500.

The Jacobs Foundation is also offering a grant of 50,000 CHF for product customization or a pilot project in the Francophone market. This year’s winning startup will also be invited to the Seedstars MENA Regional Summit in Bahrain in December 2016.
A bootcamp pitch training session will take place at Oasis500 for the startups selected to pitch in the Seedstars Amman competition, which will be guided by seasoned regional mentors.
If you’re a startup at the seed-stage level and are considering to apply, here are the rules and regulations:
