Introducing the First Ever 20 Tallinn Teams

Seedcamp Estonia

We’ve been excited for some time now to visit the small country with big talent where a significant proportion of our teams originate. Finally the week is upon us and we’re packing our warm clothes to visit Tallinn on the 18th April. We have a fantastic range of international and local mentors joining us including some great investors. Applications to Estonia were very strong with many of the surrounding countries applying as well as countries as far away as USA, proving that Tallinn has a dynamic startup scene going on. Quality was top-notch and we’re delighted to have a whooping 8 local teams represented and others joining us from Latvia, Lithuania, Finland, and Russia. Also flying in are teams from Sweden, France, UK and Slovenia. It seems to have all the ingredients lined up to make it a great interactive day where hopefully many fruitful relationships will be built and carried forward.

Trackbacks

  1. [...] Mini Seedcamp Tallinn felt like a homecoming for Seedcamp. Even though this was the first Seedcamp event in Estonia, the Seedcamp family already features six Estonian companies and is probably about to expand this number. Most Mini Seedcamp events present companies from all over Europe and the world, and this one was no exception, but the proportion of local teams was unprecedented this time, with 8 teams out of 20 coming from Tallinn and Tartu (with further 5 from other CEE countries). Adding to the general impression that Estonia is about to emerge as a serious startup hub was the presence of the nation’s president. Not only did he welcome us in the “startup country” in flawless English, he stayed to listen to all of the pitches (and was impressed by their high quality according to Twitter). [...]

  2. [...] Mini Seedcamp took place in Estonia and received ample coverage on TechCrunch, Arctic Startup and Eastist, you can find the list of the participating companies here. [...]
