After our massive Seedcamp Week in London in September (11 new teams joined Seedcamp back then), we’re gearing up for the last big Seedcamp event in 2013. Not just for us, also for our teams and mentors it was an incredible year. We’ve seen many of the Seedcamp companies blossom and grow, with new rounds being raised, products launched, and people hired.
Seedcamp Berlin is taking place in Berlin this week, with some great support from the Microsoft Ventures team. Not only are we housing our investment interviews and prep day at Microsoft Berlin, we’re also holding the big Seedcamp Product Mentoring Day at the new Microsoft Berlin office in the middle of the city.
