This is a great chance to listen to practical advice straight from Reshma Sohoni, Partner at Seedcamp on scaling your business
and what is our investment focus as a first round fund
. Here is an overview of her recent presentation on Scaling within Europe at Startup Grind this week.
Reshma is a highly experienced investor who has seen hundreds of startups and can share tips and insights on life as part of the Seedcamp family. Seedcamp applications for pre-seed investments are currently open, so if you’re a startup that is applying, this is your chance to get your answers on the process directly from one of the partners
As a dedicated first round fund, Seedcamp has come a long way since our start as an accelerator in 2007 and currently our portfolio stands at 220 startups, with over $380M in further funding achieved, over 2,500 jobs created globally and, in a very recent update, 14 companies that have now been acquired.
Reshma has always combined technology and business from university to today. Getting degrees in both Engineering and Business (UPenn M&T) meant that from an early age she was cultivating a path that would always bring business and technology together.
Early on in her career during the height of the dot com boom, Reshma worked in M&A and venture capital across B2B Software and Internet services businesses in the US and India. She had a small helping hand in building MakeMyTrip (NASDAQ) in its formative days.
Following on from this, Reshma went to INSEAD and earned her MBA, fell in love with Europe and stayed on to work in Commercial and Marketing Strategy at Vodafone. Starting Seedcamp in 2007 was a once in a lifetime opportunity and one that she jumped into with a strong desire to help the European founder realize global success.
