On December 3rd, Seedcamp will be returning to Paris for our last event of 2012. Applications close at midnight in Paris on Tuesday the 6th of November so be sure to work hard on your application over the weekend and submit it on time.
We have always been very impressed by the talented and passionate entrepreneurs in the region and, with LeWeb in town, we’re sure Paris will be buzzing with startups. The last time we were in Paris, we met the excellent teams from Bluefields and Sush.io who joined our great teams originating from France (Teleportd, Stupeflix, Kwaga, Sparkeo and Psykosoft) in the Seedcamp family.
From the applicants, 20 of the most promising early stage tech startups will be selected to attend the event in Paris for a day of presenting, networking and mentoring with over 80 of Seedcamp’s top mentors. The winners of the event will join the Seedcamp family and will benefit from our huge network, investment and the Founders’ Pack worth over €150K.
The 20 selected teams will spend the day being mentored by a great mix of local and international mentors from the Seedcamp network. Here is a small selection of the top mentors that will be with us in Paris:
- Chris Grew – Orrick
- Colette Ballou – Ballou PR

- George Karidis – SoftLayer

We would like to thank our event sponsors, SoftLayer and Yammer, who make it possible for us to host such a great event and we would also like to thank our event partner, Orrick, for hosting us in their beautiful Parisian office.
