Africa? Yes, Africa. We are really excited to announce our first endeavour below the equator and bring you Seedcamp Johannesburg. We will host a Mini Seedcamp in Johannesburg, S.A. on August 11 and we are eager to see what the (South) African tech scene is all about. We are calling all teams and entrepreneurs to apply for this opportunity to meet not only the nation’s , but also the world’s greatest entrepreneurs and mentors, investors and industry folks.
We have already had some great feedback and lots of outreach from locals wanting to come, so we now want to make it official: Applications open today, go ahead and show us why and how your team will be successful in utilizing web technology to build a great business. Convince us why you are the right team to participate in Mini Seedcamp Johannesburg and why you should get the chance to meet with our great mentors and partners to learn how you can make your business even more successful.
Seedcamp South Johannesburg is the first “special” Seedcamp event that we are adding to our regular Seedcamp schedule. We want to reach out to new locales and markets to meet the great entrepreneurs we are missing who are located beyond Europe – after all, we have seen that the underserved Eastern European markets develops great companies like Erply, Ubervu, and Brainient - some of the former Seedcamp winners. We are excited to take Seedcamp global and Africa is a great place to start.
So, if you are an entrepreneur from South Africa or Namibia, Botswana or Simbabwe (or anywhere else, for that matter), please go ahead and apply for Seedcamp Johannesburg. If you are a mentor with great connections to the startup, business, and internet community in Africa, please get in touch and let’s see how we can get you involved at Seedcamp Johannesburg!
