What is Seedcamp?

Seedcamp is an early-stage micro seed investment fund and mentoring programme. We make our investment decisions in companies throughout the year. You’ll often hear these companies referred to as the winners of a Seedcamp event.

We believe Europe has all the right ingredients – environment, talent, capital and role models – to build world beating technology businesses, but it’s hard for young entrepreneurs to develop the right connections, gain validation, build teams and raise seed capital to supercharge their businesses.

This is where we come in.

Why was Seedcamp started?

Seedcamp was created to jumpstart the entrepreneurial community in Europe by connecting next generation developers and entrepreneurs with over over 2000 mentors from a top-tier network of company builders; including seed investors, serial entrepreneurs, product experts, HR and PR specialists, marketers, lawyers, recruiters, journalists and venture capitalists.

How can I engage with Seedcamp?

Across our many global Seedcamps spread throughout the year and 4 week-long forums (Seedcamp Week) that take place 2x in London and 2x in Berlin in any given year. During these weeks we bring together EMEA’s top young founders with a world-class network of mentors in one place.

This not only provides access to seed funding but also, more importantly, will expose startups to the collective experience of people who can inspire the next generation of technology entrepreneurs and help them shape their businesses. Out of these day-long and week-long events, the door to mentorship is opened. The companies then continue to build those relationships over the months and years ahead.

What is the Seedcamp Investment?

For the winning companies of any event where we choose to make an investment, there are 3 options:

Questions about our terms? We use a soft version of the Angel Investments termsheet of Seedsummit’s Termsheet Initiative. Also, feel free to read more about what you get here.

What do I get apart from the investment?

We know that not all companies are up to speed with various aspects of running a company, so following investment, a new Seedcamp company is included into our intensive year-long program of events focusing on all the aspects of company’s development.

Our ongoing programme includes:

Plus – a team of dedicated people helping to build your business

Lastly, there is the personal time that the Seedcamp team commits to the companies, especially during the first 12 months following our investment, to help develop the business, meet the right people, or just as a friendly ear to bounce off ideas.
