October 2014 Newsletter

It’s sunny outside and everyone’s excited about meeting those big VC’s… Can you guess where we are? We’re in California! (10 points to you if you guessed it.) Yes, it’s that time of year when we cross the pond to introduce our startups to some of our American tech and VC friends. Follow the adventure on Twitter.

Meanwhile in Europe, we’re getting excited for Seedcamp Week Berlin where our network of mentors and investors will eagerly meet 20 of Europe’s top startup teams; several of whom will be offered investment to join the Seedcamp family. Applications are still open (just!) so apply before Sun 9th November’s deadline.

Finally, we’re super stoked to reveal that 8 Seedcamp startups raised new rounds this month. Well done, everyone!
