Last week we announced that Startupbootcamp was spreading it’s wings and conquering more European territory, à la Seedcamp. And yesterday, Seedcamp announced the 18 companies selected to participate in Seedcamp London on January 25th.
According to the blog post published by the team, this event received a record number of applications from across the globe – including India and Australia. And despite the strong majority of UK-based companies on the list (although nowhere near as many UK companies as last year), the 18 teams selected actually represent 9 different countries.
Here’s a rundown on the killer startups who made the cut:
