Garage48 gives fast-track access to Seedcamp
August 26, 2011
One big question after each Garage48 startup bootcamp event is what will happen to the teams after the event. To break out from their own country to Europe and across the world, joining an international incubator program is a good way for any team to rock the world. A great example is Campalyst (http://www.campalyst.com/
), born at Garage48 Riga earlier this year, attending Seedcamp New York as a presenting company and then being awarded a Seedcamp investment.
To make sure the top teams from Garage48 continue their progress on
international scale we have now joined forces with Seedcamp (http://www.seedcamp.com
Europe’s leading seed investment program. Beginning from Garage48
Tartu startup hackathon taking place this weekend in Estonia, one
top team from each Garage48 event will now get fast-track access to
be accepted as a presenting company at upcoming Mini Seedcamp with
no application process. The selection will be made by Garage48
co-founders, all startup entrepreneurs themselves, during 4 weeks
after each event based on the team, business model, market area and
international potential. The first selected Garage48 team will be
announced at the end of September and will have the opportunity to
attend Mini Seedcamp Prague in October.
Seedcamp is the leading micro-seed investment fund and mentoring
programme in Europe, making investments to early stage teams and
connecting next generation developers and entrepreneurs with over
1200 mentors from a top-tier network of company builders. Across
many global Mini Seedcamps spread throughout the year and annual
week-long forum (Seedcamp Week), Seedcamp brings together EMEA’s top
young founders with a world-class network of mentors in one place.
Garage48 Foundation organises 48-hour startup bootcamps and
hackathons across the Baltic and Nordic countries and Africa,
currently covering around ten countries and adding more next year.
