In our previous posts, we’ve mentioned the importance of our Mini Seedcamps, and as such, top teams from each Mini Seedcamp this year will be chosen to go through for the final stages of selection and have a chance at gaining a seat on Seedcamp Week or being one of several teams to receive investment through Seedcamp in 2010.

At Seedcamp, we are always striving to balance the different geographies and backgrounds across the EMEA and look for mentors who have started or grown their own companies and understand the unique challenges facing entrepreneurs today. We also bring investors in who can provide practical advice, not just on raising VC money, but what to do once you have it.

This is the chance of a lifetime for entrepreneurs and startups to receive enormous validation through attending Seedcamp, and putting yourself in front of distinguished company builders from the tech industry and the world’s top entrepreneurial gurus.

So, if you’re an entrepreneur or startup, want to get advice from some of the best mentors around and take a shot at winning a seat at Seedcamp Week – then apply to Mini Seedcamp London today! Please spread the word to startups and entrepreneurs in your region and help give them a chance to take part in the Seedcamp programme!
