Seedcamp helped the launch of many Eastern European startups during last years. In fact, around a quarter of all of our companies are from eastern Europe: Zemanta, Ubervu, Brainient, ERPLY, and now also Albia, GIS cloud and Profitero have their roots in Eastern and Central Europe. We are proud to see them launching internationally, growing strong, and attracting top international investors.
Next month, Bucharest will host a great event called How to Web, which is focused on connecting Eastern Europe with the major tech hubs around the world. Seedcamp is a strategic partner of this event that will surely help local communities connect and improve their business skills and networks.
Bogdan Iordache, one of the organisers of How to Web, told us that “Seedcamp has made a huge impact in Eastern Europe, where seed investments was nowhere to be found. By awarding in each edition a few Eastern European entrepreneurs, Seedcamp has encouraged many more to start thinking about the global market and develop technological innovations, rather then staying local.” This is why Seedcamp supports How to web in more ways than one.
The speakers lineup includes quite a few Seedcamp affiliates, including Reshma, our CEO, Katy Turner (Associate at Eden Ventures and a mentor for us), Alex Hoye (CEO of Latitude Group and Seedcamp board member) and 6 Seedcamp winners along with many others, covering topics related to business development, web trends (especially mobile & social media) and web entrepreneurship.
