2013 brings the return of Mini Seedcamps Mini Seedcamps have been at the heart of our activity from day one, and in many ways define our core values. We met some of our most successful teams by traveling to their cities and have pledged to keep this activity going. We’ve discovered entrepreneurial talent in all corners of the world and our 88 investments originate from over 30 countries. Seedcamp’s Family is truly a global one and we want to continue this tradition by visiting key cities and exploring new regions.
Local Partners During the last 5 years we’ve met incredible local champions who are pioneering their cities into startup hubs and boosting the local startup community. Over time we’ve gotten to know each other well and are lucky to call many our friends. This year we will be partnering more closely with our local partners and they will now also play a role alongside ourselves in selecting the finalists.
Applying to a Mini Seedcamp Applications to Mini Seedcamp will take place on Angelist. There are 4 questions startups must answer. Together with our local partner we will select and invite the 10 most promising startups to join us at the Mini Seedcamp Event. These 10 companies will benefit from immediate feedback on their startup, network with the startup community and gain exposure to local angels and investors. For any teams that truly shine and impress us they will be awarded a wildcard to join our next quarterly Seedcamp Week.
