Two times a year, the Seedcamp team brings the best startups looking to expand into the US and heads out on tour.
Over two weeks we head to New York, Boston, San Francisco and Silicon Valley, to meet with leading investors, successful founders, and key ecosystem players, so our own startups get the very best exposure and insight into what it takes to expand to America. We wanted to give you all a look at the teams on our US Trip, which officially started yesterday in New York!
Joining them on the East Coast and leading our trip is Ricardo Schaefer, alongside Dave Haynes, from our investment team. After a few days in New York, the Seedcamp crew will head to Boston, before heading to San Francisco for April 25th. Carlos Espinal and Cathy White also head to the West Coast later this week to join the teams. If you’re heading to Collision in New Orleans next week, be sure to get in touch with Carlos!
