Budapest ’12, A first for Seedcamp

Along the Danube River, resides a city, a World Heritage Site, with a sizzling startup scene… and with Seedcamp Week around the corner, it is with great excitement that we open applications for Seedcamp Budapest, taking place on the 25th October, today!

Why Budapest? With a strong technical element in most successful local companies, ranging from web analytics to navigation, we could not miss holding an day-long adventure in Hungary’s capital. One of the hottest entrepreneurial cities in Central and Eastern Europe, Budapest is a great location to attract founders from all over the region and beyond. After our first Hungarian team, Antavo, joined us after Seedcamp Tel Aviv, we were impressed by their hunger for success paired with technical prowess. Antavo, and other successful Hungarian startups like Prezi have shown – there’s something we were so far missing out on. As always, we have invited awesome European internet technology mentors, who will be mentoring the 20 participating startups, giving them feedback to improve their chances of success, and networking like crazy.

Event partner We are partnering with the European Entrepreneurship Foundation, a key local player, thanks to Peter Zaboji, a close friend of Seedcamp since the early days.

Why should you apply? If you are a burgeoning tech startup, if you are ready to expand and develop your service or product, if you want to grow internationally, if you are looking for top international mentorship, whether in finance, marketing, biz dev or from VC, you are in the right place. The winners of the event will receive €50k investment for 8-10% equity and will be the first official companies to enter the Seedcamp class of 2013! Will you be the next team to win the Seedcamp Investment, a year-long support, and receive the Founders’ pack of offers from our Seedcamp Founders’ Sponsors? Do you have what it takes? There is only one way to find out and that is by submitting a kick-ass application.

How can you get some of the action? This will be our first trip to Budapest and we’re excited to see what the region has to offer. We are looking for innovative internet tech, software, media, and mobile focused businesses, great teams with awesome founders, and slick products that add real value. Take a look at our superstar teams to give you a better feel for the type of companies we like. If you are as excited about our one-day Seedcamp in Budapest as we are, apply and let other founders know about Seedcamp too.

Deadline for applications is 16 September – we look forward to seeing what you are working on!
