Seedcamp Marketing Summit 2019

On the 20th September, we brought together early-stage marketers from across the Seedcamp nation for an interactive event to tackle the toughest questions our portfolio companies’ marketing leads are facing right now: from how to balance the demand for short-term results with building a brand for longevity to developing communities, teams and creating content for reach – it was a jam-packed day led by our own Head of Marketing, Natasha Lytton.

Huge thanks to all of the fantastic people who contributed including keynotes from: Hannah Craik (VP Marking @ Heist Studios) and Giles Rhys Jones (CMO @ what3words) plus lightning talks from Andy Young (Stripe/Facebook/500 Startups), Laura Wales Holliday (Depop/Rent the Runway), Sam Grant (ex-CMO @ Samsung), Freddy Ward (ex-Marketing Director @ HelloFresh) and influencer Diana Curmei (Easyneon) plus to all our mentors who led the unconference sessions which provided thought-provoking discussions and interactive workshops on everything from how to be seen in Google to speaking to press and finding metrics that matter.
