Seedcamp in Paris



Last Friday the Seedcamp train was making its scheduled stop through Paris. 

Seed Camp

Thanks to the good work of folks like Gilles B, Codor, Leafar, Jacques etc there was a good crop of startups that have been covered in detail by Mike B at TC.

SC continues to excel with the quality of its mentors; many startups were amazed to be able to interact with folks like Remy Amouroux.

For my part I had great fun moderating a panel with Dom Vidal (Index, Yahoo, Kelkoo), Gilles Babinet (Musiwave, Eyeka et. al.), Jerome Touze (WAYN), Jean Schmitt (Sofinnova) and Dider Kuhn (Screentonic).  I won’t bore you with pearls of semi-wisdom but having folks that have built, financed and exit businesses around the table was great.  As is the style for Seedcamp, we tried to keep the discussion deeply pragmatic and practical.

    It was an excellent venue, with great startups and great mentors.

    Being on the other side of the fence was very instructive, i hope we helped the startup we’ve meet.

    I learned a lot by pushing ideas to their limit with the company of mike butcher, Philippe Collombel and oups I forgot the name of that great BA with one foot in the US and the other one in France).

    Fred,
    I continue to be amazed at this industry! There is a genuine and sincere commitment from so many people at all levels to build the eco system.
    Your enthusiasm is an inspiration.
    Thanks.
