Welcome to the first Mini Seedcamp on an island – Mini Seedcamp Hvar!

Mini Seedcamp Hvar

Seedcamp, the leading European accelerator program, is hosting the first Mini Seedcamp on an island! Mini Seedcamp Hvar will take place on the first day of the Startup Island conference, on June 13 2014. In the beautiful renaissance town of Hvar on the Croatian coast.

Why apply to Seedcamp? Well – the facts speak for themselves:

  • Seedcamp companies have raised a total of $120 Million
  • On average, a Seedcamp company raises $1.3 Million after completing the program
  • 83% of Seedcamp companies have successfully raised capital

What this means for your startup is that being accepted as a Seedcamp portfolio company dramatically increases the chances of success for your project. This is why joining Seedcamp is far, far more valuable than simply winning some startup competition with nice “prize money”. The gateway to Seedcamp is participation in a Mini Seedcamp event – and there’s no better (or nicer!) place to do this than at the Startup Island conference.

Aside from the Mini Seedcamp event itself, you will enjoy two days of amazing talks and panels combined with relaxing in the unique atmosphere of the Croatian coast. Keep in mind that Startup Island is an exclusive conference with a small number of participants – which means that all participants have plenty of time to chat and network. For startups, this means an unparalleled opportunity to discuss their projects with top VC’s, journalists, bloggers and fellow founders. Try and get this kind of access to the speakers and investors at huge conferences such as Dublin Web Summit or Le Web – good luck!

Carlos Eduardo Espinal, Seedcamp partner, will host Mini Seedcamp Hvar as well as speaking at the Startup Island conference.

Applications for Mini Seedcamp Hvar will soon open up at so run, don’t walk, and sign up for the event. After all, as Woody Allen said – “In life, 50% of success is just showing up!”
