The Seedstars Growth Program is designed to help companies with early signs of product-market fit implement a growth methodology and unlock their growth formula, positioning them to raise their Seed or Series A round. On top of receiving access to thousands of USD-worth tools like Amazon Web Services, Xero, HubSpot, and more, participating startups receive 50K USD in investment from Seedstars and potential follow-on tickets from Seedstars and its network of investors.
