Mini Seedcamp Belgrade will be our inaugural event taking place in Serbia and our first Mini Seedcamp of 2013 so we are very excited! We’ve watched the ecosystem grow fast over the years having attended various events there.
Local Partners On the 5th of April, Mini Seedcamp Belgrade is taking place at a spectacular location, the Royal Palace, a mansion part of the Royal Compound. We have a super strong local team on the ground helping us make this happen, huge thank you to Vukasin Stojkov and his team at SEE ICT and our media partner start.it for all their hard work.
Schedule The half-day event is action packed and a concentrated version of our previous Seedcamp events. It will showcase some of the best emerging startups from the region, each of which will present to a panel and receive immediate feedback. The schedule also includes a masterclass by Carlos Espinal, a panel discussion and plenty of networking allowing you to connect with other key figures in web technology from Serbia and further afield.
Who should apply? Local and regional startups who are seeking exposure, advice, and want to increase their network, this is the event for you. It’s an opportunity to gain feedback on your startup, meet other entrepreneurs in an informal environment and get to know Seedcamp.
Apply to a Mini Seedcamp, Seedcamp Week or both? We’ve stepped up our activities this year and aim to host Mini Seedcamp events in more than 20 cities primarily across Europe. For startups this means more opportunities to interact with us. Stepping into a relationship with an investor is a key decision for any startup. Like any long-term partnership you want to ensure both parties are a good match. Mini Seedcamps allow startups to learn about our investment opportunities with the chance of being fast tracked to the next Seedcamp Week event where investment decisions are made. In essence there is nothing stopping you from applying to multiple events strengthening your chances of meeting us face to face and joining the Seedcamp Family!
Founders Pack The finalists of the event will each be given our Finalist Founders’ Pack, which we’re super proud of. It contains offers from corporates including AWS, Google and Bitly. It’s monetary value exceeds €50k and is crucial for helping early stage bootstrapped teams grow.
AngelList Teams can now apply to present their companies at Mini Seedcamp Belgrade on AngelList. As most startups will know AngelList is a platform to meeting investors, peers, advertise APIs and jobs. If you’re not already on there you really should be!
Applications are now closed.
We pride ourselves on running on a very lean team – 4 full timers, plus interns and experts in residence keep the lights on at Seedcamp HQ. We are looking for ambitious interns to who want to learn about startups, venture capital, and technology.
2013 is an exciting year for us, we’ve set ourselves our most ambitious targets yet: we are hosting Mini Seedcamps in over 20 cities across Europe, alongside 4 Seedcamp Weeks and 2 USA trips. Besides these events, we host monthly learning days were A class speakers come in to share their knowledge and learnings with our teams at Campus.
We are now looking for at least two interns to join us during the Summer months, to support our day to day activities, help organise our events, and help making life easier for our companies. In the past, our interns have ran the Seedhack events, were a major part in the organisation and operations of Seedcamp Week, helped us build our new application and CRM systems, redesigned our website, set a content strategy, and worked on exciting new initiatives like Seedsummit, our AngelList cooperation, and much more.
Our ideal match are graduates from interesting programs, individuals who have worked in startups or other projects, but we are also intrigued by people who are experts in their fields and have some prior work experience. Self starters and independently working individuals are most welcome, and you will get a lot of freedom to do the things in your own style. Running on all cylinders as we are, new hires need to be ready to plunge in and get going – we will provide you with all the opportunity for a great time, but ultimately, you make your own success while at Seedcamp.
Previous interns have gone on to start their own businesses, joined VC firms, enrolled in some of the most prestigious graduate programs in Europe, or are working for some of the best technology companies in Europe and the world. Read our blog for a snapshot of the experience Ahmad, David, and John had.
If you are resourceful and a self-starter, don’t think twice about the unique opportunity to intern at Seedcamp. You will find the freedom in your work and a passionate environment that makes it the most rewarding of experiences. Being at the midst of Europe’s technology scene, and being able to interact with the best startups, investors, and founders will be a great stepping stone to build your own startup, join a technology company, or investment firm.

There was also plenty of pitching to be done, with the teams presenting their companies to great investors including 500 Startups, AME Cloud Ventures, Andreessen Horowitz, Felicis Ventures, Greylock Partners, Index Ventures, Morado Venture Partners, NEA, OATV, SoftTechVC and Valar Ventures.
After seven days in California the official part of the Seedcamp US trip came to an end, with teams returning to London, staying in the US to follow up with people they met or traveling to Austin for SXSW Interactive.

2013 brings the return of Mini Seedcamps Mini Seedcamps have been at the heart of our activity from day one, and in many ways define our core values. We met some of our most successful teams by traveling to their cities and have pledged to keep this activity going. We’ve discovered entrepreneurial talent in all corners of the world and our 88 investments originate from over 30 countries. Seedcamp’s Family is truly a global one and we want to continue this tradition by visiting key cities and exploring new regions.
Local Partners During the last 5 years we’ve met incredible local champions who are pioneering their cities into startup hubs and boosting the local startup community. Over time we’ve gotten to know each other well and are lucky to call many our friends.

After a busy few days in New York, the teams headed to Boston to learn more about the local startup scene and to take part in the second mentoring day of the US trip, held at hack/reduce.
On our first day in Boston, we paid visits to thoughtbot, Martin Trust Center for MIT Entrepreneurship, Cambridge Innovation Center (CIC), Boundless Learning and RunKeeper. We also met with a Seedcamp team that had recently opened an office in Boston, uberVU, who had put together a great panel who discussed moving to the US. On the second day, we held our second mentoring day of the trip at hack/reduce. We were joined by great mentors from the Boston startup scene and top investors from all the top local funds. After the mentoring ended, we were privileged to have been invited to the ‘Built in Boston: An Open Ecosystem Event for Founders’ with great speakers such as Fred Destin (Atlas Venture), Rob Go (Next View Ventures), Robin Chase (Founder, Zipcar, Buzzcar) and Dharmesh Shah (Founder, Hubspot).
