Morocco’s StartupYourLife announces two new partnerships

Reading Time: 1 minute

SYLMoroccan entrepreneur network StartupYourLife inked two new partnerships in May, in an attempt to bring more visibility to Moroccan start-ups on an international scale, Wamda reported.

The organisation, often called SYL, will be working with the international start-up competition Seedstars World. Seedstars is a worldwide start-up competition for emerging markets and fast growing start-up scenes. The competition will hold regional events in different cities across the world. For each regional event, Seedstars World selects 15 to 20 start-ups to come for a pitch in front of jury members and attendees. The regional winners will be invited to pitch at the final event in Geneva and compete for up to $500,000 equity investment.

Last year, organisers held the competition in only one MENA city, in Dubai. This year, Amman and Casablanca will be added to the list. The Casablanca event will take place on May 17, and will be organised in collaboration with StartupYourLife. Interested start-ups must join StartupYourLife to apply; application must be sent at team@startupyourlife.org.

SYL also signed a partnership with Jordanian accelerator Oasis500. The accelerator contacted the local community to “explore investment opportunities with Moroccan start-ups and help us in our mission to boost the start-up scene in Morocco,” explains founder Kenza Lahlou.

This partnership will create bridges between SYL and Morocco’s start-ups and Oasis500’s investment team. Both organisations will work together to organise a one-week bootcamp in Casablanca, similar to the ones that took place in Palestine and Lebanon. This bootcamp, set to take place in the fall, will give selected start-ups access to mentorship from various regional entrepreneurs, mentors and investors, and will conclude in a demo day in front of Oasis 500’s investors. Laureates will be sent to Amman to follow the three-month acceleration programme.
