Overview

Seedstars has launched its second and latest fund, the Seedstars International Ventures (SIV) II, which will invest in 100 startups (those that exhibit the potential to succeed in the big leagues) in the seed-stage round.

Seedstars has raised a total of $21M across 2 funds, their latest being Second emerging market seed stage fund. This fund, SIV II Fund, was announced on Jul 27, 2022 and raised a total of $20M.

The capital will be invested across the pre-seed and seed-stage startups in Asia, Africa, the Middle-East, and Latin American countries over the next three years. To add to this, Seedstars is committed to make follow-on investments up to the Series A funding rounds. The investments, according to Seedstars, will mostly be done into companies that focus on finance, commerce, health, work and education.

This is an area where the SIV II, with its initial checks falling between $150,000 to $250,000 and follow-on investments of $500,000, will be needed. The fund, which plans to follow on 25% of its portfolio, will also focus on specific countries in the regions. The fund will focus on Indonesia, Vietnam and the Philippines in Southeast Asia, Egypt in the Middle East, Pakistan and Bangladesh in South Asia, Mexico in Latin America, and several countries in Africa.
