It’s been a sweltering summer so far in London and the city is set to be alight with talented startups when Mini Seedcamp London hits the town on 27th July 2010.
Once again, Seedcamp received a record number of applicants applying from all over the EMEA to win a seat at Mini Seedcamp London, and ultimately a prestigious spot at Seedcamp Week in September.
The incredible quality and ideas of the teams applying to Mini Seedcamp London this year has considerably increased, with many teams already making great progress being self-financed and bootstrapped. Making the decision on the top 20 teams for London this year proved very difficult indeed (in fact we chose 21!) and we had to turn away many teams with great businesses and ideas, but we want to encourage those teams to keep plugging away – from what we are seeing, there is no down-turn in our sector and more and more people see startups as a viable alternative to a corporate career and 9 to 5 jobs…so don’t loose the dream!
And so, it is with great excitement that we announce our top 21 teams chosen to attend Mini Seedcamp London on 27th July 2010 at the celebrated campus of UCL:
