Seedstars World is a global seed-stage startup competition for emerging markets which hopes to reduce unemployment to the barest minimum. In preparation for the global competition at Switzerlannd, it has selected winners in several countries which include: Egypt, Tunisia, South Africa, Mozambique, Angola and Nigeria, with Chalkboard Education emerging winner at the Ghanian edition.

Chalkboard Education is an educational startup which aims to improve access to training and education on any device via SMS without the use of internet connection. 

Talking about the opportunities Seedstars presents, Adrien Bouilloit, Founder and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Chalkboard Education said: “If I judge by last year’s winners I think the global summit in Switzerland is going to be life-changing. Last year’s winners Asoriba had an amazing year and we hope to be able to do the same with the help of the Seedstars platform.”

Chalkboard Education will participate at the Seedstars Summit in Switzerland which involves a week-long training programme with the opportunity to meet the other 60 winners, as well as investors and mentors from around the world. The final day of the summit is dedicated to pitching in front of an audience of 1,000 attendees, with the possibility of winning up to US$1 million in equity investment.

“The quality of startups in Ghana is absolutely impressive and it was very hard to choose a winner amongst so many great companies. However, we are very happy with our decision to take Chalkboard Education to our global summit,” said Selam Kebede, associate for Seedstars World Africa.
