Had that Eureka Moment?
Great! Nothing gets the Seedcamp team more excited than testing, playing, reading, and exploring your brilliant ideas. The ones we generally back are capital efficient tech businesses across software/mobile/internet/media, but we’re open to innovative ideas and businesses in related areas, too. The main thing is to demonstrate a big potential for the idea.
Show us your Product
We’re very impressed by applicants who have something to show us, this can be an Alpha or Beta version of your product, a prototype, or videos and screenshots. Some teams apply to Seedcamp with market traction and even early revenue.
Seedcamp hosts Seedcamp events globally throughout the year, click the “Apply Now” button to be considered for our next event. At Seedcamp we think it’s most important to apply when you’re ready to take your business to the next level, location should come second. Make sure you take the time to write a kickass application – how will you and your business make it big? Don’t be afraid to show off, we like ambition and drive.
Judging and Selection
Selection takes place the week after applications have closed. Seedcamp’s investors are the judges – first impressions count. You will usually be notified within a week if you have been selected. Competition is very tough, so if you don’t make the shortlist you are welcome to re-apply. We like to see teams iterate on their products and business model. Some Seedcamp event participants also re-apply after a Seedcamp event and return with an even better proposition.
Have fun and learn tons
A Seedcamp event is a whirlwind of successful entrepreneurs, product experts, VCs, and angel investors and is designed to accelerate your progress by condensing months worth of introductions, advice, and wisdom into a single day. Think of it as opening the door on future relationships. This is your opportunity to shine, show what you’re building, and receive honest and constructive feedback. You will make connections, find partners and new customers, and potentially even funding. Meet your peers, share knowledge and learnings, and be warned: it’s super intensive!
