Seedstars, the largest global startup competition for Emerging Markets, asked Julian to be a judge at their startup competition in Panama City. The winner, RedOxigen, an augmented reality commerce platform, won a trip to the Seedstars regional summit in Buenos Aires and their global summit in Lausanne Switzerland, where they will compete with other local winners from five different continents for up to $1 Million in grants and investment. VIAGlobal is now a partner/mentor at Seedstars and we look forward to continuing to expand our relationship with them. More to come soon.
