Since August we’ve brought on four new team members to help support our startups and widen our bandwidth. As we march on into 2015 we grow again, bringing two more super talented recruits into the Seedcamp family!

Miguel is our new Tech Lead. He’s going to be working on maintaining and improving all the things you don’t see – the servers, the CMS, the application platform, and other tech-related things that we probably don’t understand.

Ioana has actually been with us since last September, having initially joined as an intern. She’s been doing a super job and stepped up to become our new Office & Events Manager in November! As well as looking after our team and startups in the office, she’ll be coordinating all Seedcamp events throughout the year.

We asked some questions to help you get to know them…

 

Ioana Craescu, Office Manager

Introduce yourself in a 30-word elevator pitch

My background is quite mixed: visual communications, journalism and event management. I use them all in what I do. I normally expect things to turn out well, because hard work always pays off.

What are you most looking forward to in your role at Seedcamp?

I am delighted to accept the challenge of nurturing the high quality level of the Seedcamp experience, reflected in the events we run to connect top founders, mentors and investors and in the success stories of our teams.

When not working, what are you most likely to be doing?

Browsing for things to decorate my house, listening to jazz and cycling.

Who was your childhood hero?

Zoro (roll the “r”) – I used to have loads of wooden swords and capes.

What’s your specialist subject outside of work?

Graphic design and travel destinations.

What’s one piece of advice you’d give to a startup?

Test, try and chose, but never release all the features of your product at once – too much won’t necessarily impress, but confuse.

What’s your specialist subject outside of work?

Languages – I speak a few and love to discover ones and the attached cultures.

What’s one piece of advice you’d give to a startup?
