Ranging from hydroponic farming to obituaries, nearly a dozen tech startups competed Thursday in the third edition of Seedstars, an international competition focused on seed-stage companies in emerging countries.Surprisingly, many industry players rely on manual records, according to Emile Harb, who created Merchandiser with two colleagues at software developer Codefish.Fadi Bizri, a jury member and managing director of the Bader Young Entrepreneurs Program, noted that Merchandiser was the first mover in its field, praising its timing and extensive consultation with supermarkets and merchandisers.To help Merchandiser scale up quickly, Bizri will consider investing in it through his soon-to-be-launched seed-stage venture capital fund.
