Each year, Seedstars looks for the most promising early-stage startups from more than 90 countries. These startups will then receive inclusive training on how to be investment-ready. The “Seedstars World” has three stages of local, regional and global competitions.
Seedstars picks the top startup from each country in the Local Stage. This startup would represent the country Regional Stage. This year, Seedstars has selected Paklean Online Laundry as the local winner of Iran. The winners of the regional competition will be announced by mid-December.
