Seedcamp has announced the 20 teams that have been accepted to Seecamp Week Berlin, its week-long event that it announced earlier this year, which will provide selected teams with access to a world-class network of mentors, including investors from Index Ventures, Point Nine Capital, Balderton Capital, BDMI, Earlybird, DFJ Esprit and T-Venture. The event, hosted by BDMI, The Wyre & The Factory, includes startups from all over Europe & Israel, including 7 teams who had previously attended one of several “mini-seedcamp” events – one-day events where participating teams can get feedback on their startup from a local network of mentors.
These Seedcamp events are particularly important for investors, as they are usually a preliminary step towards getting accepted into the Seedcamp accelerator, which, among other advantages, provides startups with a US tour (New York, Boston, San Francisco, etc.) meeting investors & Seecamp’s US mentor network, which has resulted in 80 startups raising a total of 80M€ since its launch. Last December, we covered Seedcamp Paris, which saw 3 startups receive investment following the event. Seedcamp’s network is notably engaged in the European community, and, while none of the Seedcamp Berlin startups are based in France, it is certainly a good way to keep an eye on the most promising of European Startups, as Seedcamp is, to date, the only accelerator that can really claim to attract the top European startups (especially those with their eyes on the US market).
