I remember when I first met Alisée De Tonnac, it was 2014 at LIFT Conference in Geneva, while preparing the first edition of seedstars world. Alisée was all over the place, helping volunteers, setting up Seedstars world posters, receiving startups from the whole world. It was a thriving and magical feeling. While I was helping Alisée setting up posters and whatever needed to be done she was telling me about the magical year she had just spent traveling around the world meeting local entrepreneurs and organising local competitions in over 30 countries creating a network of great people all over the world mainly in emerging markets.
The positive power of Seedstars World is that it really creates links and brings people together. Imagine having over 60 entrepreneurs from all over the world full of energy and together for a few days in geneva for the summit. It creates lasting links and strong bonds that go way beyond any artificial prejudices like religion or race.
In 2015 Seedstars world had grown incredibly but the same excitement and energy were always present. It’s like doing a worldwide tour of innovation in one day without moving from switzerland.
Still full of energy at the end of the day we all went to the then just opened impact hub geneva, and just started dancing like crazy with Alisée definitely leading the dances. Yes a little known fact is that she participated in an International Hip-hop dance competition, so be warned, make sure you have stamina and endurance to keep up with a seedstars world party 🙂
In 2016 Seedstar summit grew even larger and moved to Lausanne where it will be held also this year. In April 2017
