Seedstars Opens Applications for its Summer Growth Program

The Seedstars Growth Program is a Virtual Three Month Post-Acceleration program focused on Growth

The program is designed to help startups build a Growth Team and implement a Growth Methodology in order to support scaling up the venture and raise Series A and beyond.

We have mastered the technique of organising an entire acceleration program virtually.

So, rather than taking you out of your market, we bring the expertise to you so that you may remain close to your customers and your team.
