Seedcamp - the original accelerator programme in Europe

Seedcamp is an early stage mentoring and investment program that engages startups through our monthly Seedcamp Events, where entrepreneurs present their companies, network, receive mentoring, and compete for investment by Seedcamp.

Seedcamp is an early-stage micro seed investment fund and mentoring programme. We make our investment decisions in companies several times throughout the year. You’ll often hear these companies referred to as the winners of a Seedcamp event.

We believe Europe has all the right ingredients – environment, talent, capital and role models – to build world beating technology businesses, but it’s hard for young entrepreneurs to develop the right connections, gain validation, build teams and raise seed capital to supercharge their businesses.

Besides Seedcamp, in Europe there are also other great accelerators such as: Startupbootcamp or Hackfwd.
