After interning in London for the summer, I had the opportunity of helping out with Seedcamp week 2011. Seedcamp is Europe’s largest tech startup accelerator programme. There were 4 main days, Entrepreneurs, Product, Growth and Demo day. The energy throughout the whole week was intense as a whirlwind of more than 100 entrepreneurs and venture capitalists from around the world were present each day. We also got a copy of ‘The Lean Startup, by Eric Ries‘ one week early!
We had quite a few interesting talks throughout the week as well. Notable ones are from Ilya (Yandex), Martin Varsavsky (Fon) and Dave McClure (500 Startups). The best quote I took away from the event was from Dave who said “Hate is closer to Love than indifference”. Slides from his presentation are here.
Good luck to the Seedcamp startups!
