What Is Seedcamp Week Really Like?
Attending a Seedcamp Week is an unique experience: nowhere else will you find the best minds coming together to help you accelerate your business. Here is what some of our founders and past finalist have to say about the whirlwind week:
“Seedcamp Week was a brilliant opportunity to drive the rough explanation of peer to peer money transfer into a compelling pitch of why the world will be different after TransferWise. Inspired by the other founders and speakers, it gave us the needed boost to double down on the early disruptive idea and scale it into the business that has turned over £1 billion today.”
“Seedcamp Week was a turning point in our lives both professionally and personally. Seedcamp gave us our very first funding to pursue BRANDiD when no one else cared. Seedcamp Week taught us how to pitch and build a product that people wanted. On the last day of Seedcamp Week we found our first angel, which led to our first round of funding. A year later, we’re pushing over $100k in sales and growing by 30% every quarter. If it weren’t for that very first chain of events, BRANDiD would not exist today. We owe everything to them.”
“It was a pawsome week where we met with great mentors, were inspired by other start-up companies and made valuable connections with potential investors. The Seedcamp family is absolutely wonderful and is such a big help to any start-up.”
“Wow I’ve made so many friends at the Seedcamp Week London. The best friends ever, they are smart, passionate and inspiring. Thanks to all of them we are now developing our product in the epicenter of the skateboarding world: LA, California. Take your chance, apply to Seedcamp!’
“We are extremely thankful for the chance to participate in the event and definitely recommend this to all start-ups looking for either top of the line feedback or some funding. Full experience here”
