Two times a year, the Seedcamp team brings the best startups looking to expand into the US and heads out on tour.
Over two weeks we head to New York, Boston, San Francisco and Silicon Valley, to meet with leading investors, successful founders, and key ecosystem players, so our own startups get the very best exposure and insight into what it takes to expand to America. We wanted to give you all a look at the teams on our US Trip, which officially started yesterday in New York!
Joining them on the East Coast and leading our trip is Ricardo Schaefer, alongside Dave Haynes, from our investment team. After a few days in New York, the Seedcamp crew will head to Boston, before heading to San Francisco for April 25th. Carlos Espinal and Cathy White also head to the West Coast later this week to join the teams. If you’re heading to Collision in New Orleans next week, be sure to get in touch with Carlos!

Seedcamp is thrilled to announce the most recent startups to become a part of our growing family.
We’ve had a fantastic year so far, with two successful exits for Holvi and Stupeflix, big rounds of investment for Property Partner and Elliptic, and an impressive list of teams who met with our mentor and investor network at Seedcamp Week London.
A day doesn’t go by without a Seedcamp backed team shouting about their news and it’s amazing to watch as our younger teams gain even more momentum.
Reshma Sohoni, Founding Partner of Seedcamp, commented “We’re in our ninth year at Seedcamp, and we’re seeing more and more success in the startups we’re backing, with great results for Holvi and Stupeflix. Our seed fund is going from strength-to-strength and we’re continuing to attract the very best Founders. The latest teams are prime examples of the different types of talent to join our portfolio, with everything from the serial entrepreneur to the ambitious young dreamers, and the industry experts to the classic overachievers. We look forward to supporting these new startups scale and reach their global goals.”
Carlos Espinal, Partner of Seedcamp, added “Our newest teams are using technology to make a serious impact in each of their industries. CharlieHR and Juro are platforms that help support the growing number of small businesses, with tools to save huge amounts of time wasted on HR and Legal. Oratio will change the way customer service teams communicate with their customer in an age of instant messaging applications and Thriva enables us to monitor our health from home so we can understand what is happening in our bodies. Finally, Microscaling Systems will be launching a solution to help companies grow and scale their application infrastructure dynamically.
“Each startup is building a business that can have a global impact and reach, using technology as the enabler of big change, saving us time, money and changing human behaviours.”
