As we are gearing up for New York, we are time and time again impressed by the great mentors in our network. Seedcamp is a great opportunity for entrepreneurs to speak to people they would otherwise not be able to meet, and we are working hard to get the right people on board.

The most consistent feedback we get from companies after the Mini Seedcamp events revolves around the number of great people the teams get to meet and interact with during the day. At each event, about 60 to 80 of our more than 1,000 mentors from around the world are present to see the companies pitch and to give them feedback and advice on their businesses.

Our goal is to not have them pitch their products duringthe mentoring sessions, instead we aim to get everybody to open up about their biggest issues in the business enabling the experienced mentors to contribute in finding a solution. The outcomes are great, and we repeatedly hear praise about this structure – both from teams and mentors, who immensely enjoy the discussions.

To give you a little sneak peek of who is coming to ourNew York City event on June 14, here is a selection of the mentors that are coming.
