Mini Seedcamp Helsingborg done for this time

It’s been a great event and I am very satisfied with how everything worked out. Everybody has been so positive and happy to be a part of the mentoring sessions, panel debate and of course all the social interaction in between.

A happy camper. A happy seedcamper.

The three teams that got special attention and who got chosen by popular vote are:

  1. Kvittar
  2. Myfi.net
  3. Peerialism

You can find some of the pictures from the event on Flickr or see what the participants tweeted about.

I would like to thank all the participating teams, the great mentors who gave their time and attention to our exciting entreprenuers for making this a rewarding event for everybody. It has been fun collaborating with the seedcamp group and we are looking forward to be able to do it agin.🙂

Cheers!

Since one of the teams coming to Helsingborg, bluewalks.com have created a walking rout application I immediately tried it out. Here is the map I made with directions on how to get from Knutpunkten to SHIP.

Soon all shall be revealed

Well, at least soon we will know who made the cut and are amongst the twenty teams that will get to come to Helsingborg for the Mini Seedcamp. I suppose that it’s a tough job coosing amongst all the great applications from seed hungry entreprenuers.

I have gotten word that there were as many as 59 teams applying to this event and judging has started. The Seedcamp group in London will be announcing the competing teams next week! This is exciting stuff.

In less than two week SHIP will once again be filled to the brim:

We are closing in on the 19th

We are getting closer and closer to the last date for applying to the Mini Seedcamp in Helsingborg. Right now there is a buzz about it and I hope all mentors do as good a job promoting the event as Joakim Jardenberg does. Go and see what is being said about this event all over the startup-community.

After 19 April the Seedcamp group in London will pick the twenty teams that get to come to Helsingborg. Right now we don’t know how many have applied, only that a week or so ago there were 37 applications in the process. Hopefully the application process itself will help the teams that don’t make the pick. The work laid down in this application process will pay off when applying for seed capital elswere too I am sure.
