Every year the Seedstars team travels around the world and visits over 60 countries to remain current on even the slightest changes in each entrepreneurial ecosystem, analyze them and come up with a comprehensive overview of the entrepreneurship state in each emerging market - the Seedstars Index (SSI).
The Seedstars Index measures the quality, potential, and maturity of startup ecosystems. The SSI is the only index in the world focusing on rising startup ecosystems which have the most potential for measurement and improvement. In 2018, Seedstars visited and assessed 78 ecosystems in 63 countries.
The pillars of the Seedstars Index (SSI) are three factors that we believe are fundamental in building a thriving entrepreneurial ecosystem: Culture, Environment and Opportunity. These three pillars form the foundation of a startup ecosystem and permit success cases, which are both the desired output and the catalyst of an ecosystem.
