Seedcamp is where Europe’s top young founders can come together in one place.

From securing funding to developing the right network, young entrepreneurs in Europe face challenges in building globally competitive technology businesses. Through the provision of seed capital and a world class network of mentors, we want to provide a catalyst for Europe’s next generation of entrepreneurs.

What we believe

  • Europe has all the right ingredients environment, talent, capital and role models – to build world beating technology businesses
  • It’s hard for young entrepreneurs to secure funding, develop the right connections and build teams to supercharge their business
  • Once a year, we will bring together Europe’s top young founders and a world class network of mentors in one place
  • We will provide seed funding, but more importantly we will expose these teams to the collective experience of people who can help inspire the next generation of Europe’s future serial entrepreneurs Some of the projects and posts we feel close to and which have inspired us:
