We are happy to announce applications are now being taken for Mini Seedcamp London, being held at the prestigious NESTA headquarters in London on 20th April 2009. While we are on the lookout for the next best startups to come out of the UK and Ireland, we encourage any startup from the EMEA to apply who are ready to take the plunge and show us what you’ve got. To increase your chances in gaining a spot, we would strongly recommend that you spend a good amount of time filling out the application comprehensively so that you can communicate with us as clearly as possible the critical strengths of your team and idea.
Once again, Mini Seedcamp London will connect 20 top quality, early stage web tech startups with over 50 regional and European industry leading and highly experienced entrepreneurs, investors and developers to participate in a day of mentoring, panel discussions and presentations.
The teams will benefit from engaging with and listening to, a variety of distinguished mentors and industry leaders from product designers and marketing specialists and venture capitalists to serial entrepreneurs. Through a series of interactive panel discussions and informal 1:1 sessions, the selected teams will gain invaluable insight and a solid foundation to help kick-start a viable business in Europe today. Not to mention being inspired by fellow entrepreneurs and a chance to broaden their scope within the European start-up ecosystem.
Our goal is always to help as many great start-ups as we can to have that initial capital to kick-start their business and of course to make the most relevant relationships possible. As such, Seedcamp may also invest through the Mini Seedcamps or the teams may be invited to apply for Seedcamp Week in September 2009 held in London, whereby 20 teams are selected from around the EMEA to attend and compete for seed funding and garner world-class connections for startups.
Applications are now open and close at midnight on Monday 6th April 2009. For full details, updates and how to apply go to the mini site.
