We started the Seedstars Academy because we wanted to impact people’s lives and give them the skills to become entrepreneurs. We are in need of talented & hungry change makers who want to change the world.
About the program
Seedstars Academy is where tech-driven young achievers become entrepreneurs and learn the skills of the future.
Consider applying to the Seedstars Academy, a 1 year, paid opportunity to become a tech entrepreneur while learning from successful mentors & investors and practicing on exciting MVPs.
Candidates that make it through our screening process are invited to participate in a free, 5 days bootcamp led by Seedstars network mentors & partners. After the bootcamp and if you are selected, you will be invited to join the paid program.
It starts with a 3 months fully-immersive program in one of our seedspace.co hubs. The second batch will held in Lagos / Nigeria.
The program lasts 12-13 weeks so the first week is full-time course. After that, you will have 10% coaching, mentoring & workshops sessions and the chance to gain a practical and concrete vision of a tech startup by experimenting, launching or building MVPs.
You will have the opportunity to work on multiple MVPs (from websites to apps) in a multidisciplinary team, and to assimilate the theoretical concepts that will be introduced in parallel with the help of the teaching team, which consists of investors, founders and professionals from major international startups.
Once you are done with the program, we place you in one of our company. As such, we’ll provide you with an offer to hire you full-time right after the program to continue working on successful MVPs, Seedstars ventures or have you join a SeedstarsWorld startup.
