Time is really flying by here at Seedcamp. It has only been a month and a half since the beginning of 2011, and we already have 3 new amazing companies on board and a new Mini Seedcamp event in front of us (16th of February). This time we are going to Tel Aviv, and, as proven by our two recent portfolio companies, Ineze and Sparkeo, we are super excited about the Israeli entrepreneurial environment.
We have seen a record number of entrepreneurs submitting applications for the event in Tel Aviv this year; with many different sectors of the online software market, the fast growing mobile sector and new social technologies being well represented.
