We are extremely excited to present the Founders Sponsors at Seedcamp. As much as we strive to find the hottest startups across Europe and beyond, we work just has hard to support them also. We want to take this opportunity to send out a heartfelt thank you to all of our incredibly kind and generous sponsors for working with us on this journey. Over the years we’ve created a tremendous pool of mentors who are as enthusiastic as ourselves about meeting the future superstars early on during their startup journey. A huge amount of value is added this way during Mini Seedcamps and Seedcamp Week, where mentors and startups spend the days together learning and sharing experiences.
But events are just one step in opening the door to relationships. Many of the mentors want to take their mentorship further. In the course of building a mentor network, Seedcamp is fortunate enough to have built strong relationships with companies big and small, individuals, startups, or corporates who appreciate how tough it is starting out. Besides getting Seedcamp’s investment of €50K and support from the team, it still costs a lot (from a startup’s sense of a lot 🙂 to spend on tools and expertise that will help them grow fast.
Together we’ve created a sponsorship structure to ensure everybody can support and contribute time, expertise and services to some of world’s most promising entrepreneurs. On the flip side the sponsors benefit as well because they get our winners every year trialling their services, products, expertise which builds potential referrals, clients, users, customers for our sponsors.
Our Founder Sponsors are contributing over £50k of free or hugely discounted services and products throughout the year for each Seedcamp winner. These range from free business cards and office space through to efficient ways of producing board packs, to accessing accessing HR, legal and marketing experts for longer worksessions. Please check out our Founder Sponsor page to see the full list.
Perhaps we haven’t shouted about this enough as our Founder Sponsors have been extending great offers to our companies since we started out. Each and every one of them is helping us in our mission to accelerate the development and growth of the start-up ecosystem. As our Twitter followers will be aware, for the past month or so we have been been introducing our fantastic Founder Sponsors one by one. Advent calendar style, each day there’s been another surprise!
