The Nordics have a reputation for innovative thinking and design, and the teams and venue for Mini Seedcamp Copenhagen didn’t disappoint. We saw companies working on everything from games, to tools for streaming large files and services to help bands manage their gigs. All of this was hosted at the stunning IT University of Copenhagen which provided an inspirational backdrop.
A popular vote at the end of the day resulted in six favorite teams, who were (in alphabetical order):
Hypezoo – a search engine for upcoming products
Kkloud – a file sharing service which allows you to download the file whist uploading
Mailforgood – fund raising for charities using email adverts
NuGames – Location based game based on the board game Risk
Queue-it – A virtual queue system to help sites cope during peak periods
Topicmarks – Software to automatically summarise large documents
Michael Jackson, from Mangrove Partners gave an excellent talk at the Mini Seedcamp on “Building a big business a long way from Silicon Valley”. He covered the major points from raising funding, building your network, and proving your business. It’s well worth watching and the video is embedded below.
