I have been following seedcamp a lot recently, especially after listening to Reshma sohoni speak at a UCL event a while ago and when a friend of mine Julian polzella entered into seedcamp, i even paid more attention, so it is definitely time i wrote about and let me know what it is about, that is people who do not know about it is obviously, rather than me secretly monitoring it.
I also listened to Andrew Warner funny and interesting interview with Reshma, seedcamp’s CEO.
I spoke to Reshma a while ago and i remember asking what it takes for seedcamp to approve start-ups for investments.
Here are a few
Two co-founders must complement each other
One co-founder should be a coder
Actually, Listen to Andrew warner interview on mixergy, she speaks about it all in more details.
I remember reaching out to them a while ago about some promotional work and was so amazed in how willing they were to help.
Going back a bit, for everyone that is new to seedcamp
Seedcamp is an organization to jumpstart the entrepreneurial community in Europe by putting the next generation of developers and entrepreneurs in front of a network of company builders; including seed investors, serial entrepreneurs, product experts, HR specialists, marketers, lawyers, recruiters, journalists and venture capitalists.
Seedcamp acts as a micro seed fund to invest in startup companies, mainly through its flagship event Seedcamp Week which takes place in September. It also runs Mini Seedcamps in several startup hubs around Europe from January-June. Seedcamp’s standard investment is €30-50k. Following Seedcamp Week, the companies who receive investment stay in London for 3 months to grow and develop their company.
If you can remember a while ago, we did some interview on some start-ups funded by seedcamp
