Fly to Switzerland with JumpStart Pakistan

Seedstarssummit* is a contest held every year in Switzerland where StartUp Teams from all around the world showcase their ideas in front of investors gathered from multiple countries in order to not only secure a wining slot and bragging rights, but also over $1 Million in investment for their business idea.

However, not everyone can get access to seedstarssummit* just like that. Seed Stars World has a set policy and criteria around which a yearlong competition is held in every country that participates in seedstarssummit*. All through the year the country conducts their native startup competition under different names for every different country and then the winners are sent to Switzerland to represent their country’s startup talent in seedstarssummit*.

Pakistan has also had the privilege of participating in seedstarssummit* for 3 years now and JumpStart Pakistan has been given the honor of holding the startup hunt in Pakistan from where the winner gets to fly to Switzerland. JumpStart has named their platform for this purpose as “Shepherd’s Pie”.
