UK Diary: Tuesday - Seed Camp's Highflyers
(Photo Susan Bratton.) Tuesday morning the Traveling Geeks were at Seed Camp. I couldn't make it but here are some of our reports:
We started off the day today with a fun event created by Reshma Sohoni and Alasdair Ball ofSeedCamp. SeedCamp is an early stage fund that also provides exacting business support and grooming for UK and European start ups who are socially-oriented. Typical investments are up to 50 thousand Euros for about 10% of the business.
