Seedcamp Drills cash into 7 Super Startups
by Startacus Admin
They’re at it again…
Seedcamp that is, who have once again announced big funding for 7 exciting UK startups!
Seedcamp (for those of you giving your screen a puzzled head-tilt) is an early-stage startup seed investment fund and mentoring programme, which completes a round of funding at various locations across Europe annually.
They dish out investment of up to £150,000 in exchange for no more than 10% equity, and offer a range of support to help see their startups on their way to success - which is really jolly nice of them!
Their intake is always a great source of inspiration, with innovative and intriguing startups aplenty!
In the hope that some of their vitality and innovation might rub off on our members (and indeed ourselves) here’s a quick overview of who has made it through to the Seedcamp programme.
Carbon Voyage- This is a startup after our own heart, who aim to improve transport and help save time, money and the environment all at the same time. They have a range of innovative intelligence products through which to do this, such as ‘Voyage Control’ which they describe as "Air traffic control for freight vehicles". It's all rather complicated and tech-y so pop to their website for more info, should you feel so inclined.
Homeshift - this is a home moving service startup that helps you to organise moving house and helps eliminate the uncessecary hassles that can come from disorganisation. They even claim that Homeshift ‘makes moving fun’- which we are a teeny bit sceptical about, but if they at least manage ‘less loathsome’, we will be delighted!
Make Works - this is like a directory that connects designers with manufacturers and fabricators in their local area. At the moment the are operating only in Scotland, and give anyone there the opportunity to source local materials, employ local manufacturers and support their local economy.
NewsFixed - describing itself as ‘The Future of Freelance’ this is an international journalism marketplace which allows media organisations and businesses which need to produce a lot of information to commission content much more easily and efficiently than ever before. They are a really novel reaction to the 24/7 ‘go go go’ nature of information sharing.
ShopRocket - they describe themselves in such beautifully simplistic terms that we needn't say more “Feature rich eCommerce that integrates seamlessly into any application with a single line of code.” bloomin’ marvellous…
Wriggle - this is another wonderfully simple, yet somehow genius little startup (with a very cute name). Wriggle offers users a discounted price on unsold spaces at local food, drink & entertainment businesses.
Medefer- they provide an innovative medical advisory service for GPs that improves patient safety and reduces the need for patient referrals to secondary care.
If, like all of these folks, you have a great project, idea or startup, then why not add it to our amazing collaboration space where you can show it off to the world and get great support as well!
