The Seedstars World series’ Lagos pitch is holding this Friday and the Swiss investment company has announced the final list of 10 startups that will pitch to investors at the event.

Hello Tractor, a Uber-like startup that provides, what it calls, smart tractors for smallholding farmers, is one of the more exciting startups that will pitch at the event.

The company is not really a Nigerian company, in that it is not owned by Nigerians. Van Jones, and Jehiel Oliver, Hello Tractor co-founders are both United States nationals, but the company is starting out in Nigeria and began its pilot in Nigeria in late 2014.

Other startups that will pitch at event include: Bazar NG, CowriePay, Food-I-Like, Intellectric, Nerve, which recently pivoted from hardware to a content hosting and distribution infrastructure; Rafael Stores, Skarabrand, Talentbase Nigeria and My Q.

One last startup from the UberPITCH competition that held yesterday will join the startup lineup. Making a total of eleven startups.

TechCabal reported earlier that the Seedstars World pitch tour will hold in Lagos on the final day of the Lagos startup week at Oriental Hotel, Lekki and one startup will advance to Geneva for the global finals in February where three winners will each receive a $500, 000 in investment.
