Seedcamp, the European seed investment program that originated in London has opened its Nordic Mini Seedcamp for applications. This year the Mini Seedcamp takes place in Copenhagen, Denmark 27th May 2010.
Mini Seedcamp Copenhagen is a one day event aiming to connect the 20 best web-tech, mobile and software startups with some of the leading entrepreneurs, developers, and experts from the European tech ecosystem.
Last year Seedcamp’s Nordic event took place in Helsingborg, Sweden and attracted a decent line-up of startups. That said, there is definitely room for more quality applicants, not least from Finland. You can see our coverage from last year here.
Seedcamp’s perhaps the most valuable prize is a direct channel to a quite impressive line-up of investors and to Saul Klein’s address book. Klein is the founder of Seedcamp. I hope to see the number of applications to multiply from previous years. It really is a quite rare and valuable launch pad for a young founder team. In fact, one of the most impressive Seedcamp goer comes from Estonia: Erply just raised $2 million round from Redpoint, Index Ventures, Marten Mickos, Zack Urlocker, Kenny van Zant, Aydin Senkut, David McClure and the Accelerator Group (see our story here). A great example of the power of Seedcamp. You can apply here.
