You may have heard about Webmission, the trade mission of which TechCrunch UK was a part, to take 20 UK startups to network with investors and startups in Silicon Valley. Well, we’re at it again. This time TCUK worked with Chinwag (a UK digital media community) the UK Trade and Investment government agency and law firm Winston and Strawn to come up with 21 UK companies to take to Web 2.0 Expo in New York. They will network like crazy and talk up the industry over here. Alas, I’ll be stuck in London covering Seedcamp, but TCUK be covering their activities over in NYC remotely.
The full list of selected companies is at Digital-mission.org but here’s the skinny: B View; Harvest Digital; Head London; Headshift; Huddle; Idio Mag; KMP Interactive Marketing & Technology; Littleloud; Market Sentinel; Mippin; Quick TV; Slice the Pie; Smarkets; Sweemo; Tactile CRM; Tempero; UGame; UnLtd World; Unruly Media; Veedow and World TV.
The advisory board included ex-Dragon’s Den star, Doug Richards; Tech Crunch editor, Mike Butcher (er, me); and Seedcamp CEO, Reshma Sohoni. Chinwag is also working on a mission to SXSW Interactive, which is worth applying for.
