This Thursday, we will be bringing over 70 of our best mentors together on the banks of the Danube to meet 20 of Europe’s top startups for Seedcamp Budapest. After a full day of presenting, mentoring and networking, the winners will be the first teams to join the Seedcamp class of 2013!
When our first Hungarian team, Antavo, joined us after Seedcamp Tel Aviv, we knew we had to pay attention to one of the hottest entrepreneurial cities in Central and Eastern Europe and host an event in Budapest. The response has been phenomenal; we received hundreds of excellent applications and had the very difficult task of selecting only twenty to attend the event. Out of the twenty selected, we are pleased to announce that five of the teams are from Budapest and will be presenting on home turf. As always, the others represent ten different countries from all over Europe and will be traveling to join us for the day in Hungary.
