Seedcamp is a European seed fund investing across pre-seed and seed stages in world-class founders attacking large global markets and solving real problems using technology. We have made 250+ investments to date, 80%+ of which have gone on to raise follow-on funding to the tune of over $1bn. We are proud of our track record which includes 22 exits to date with Seedcamp companies acquired by major brands such as Twitter, Airbnb and GoPro. We invest in highly disruptive, fast-growing businesses across multiple sectors including the likes of FinTech unicorn, Transferwise, Revolut, Property Partner, UiPath, eMoov and wefox, among others. In 2017 we announced the sale of our first two funds to Draper Esprit in a deal that delivered a 4x return to our LPs.
This is a short-term role for 6 months. It is an exceptional opportunity to position yourself at the very centre of London’s thriving startup ecosystem and learn from the best. Seedcamp is a small team with some incredibly talented people. We recently raised our fourth fund which, at a first close of £41m, is our biggest and boldest fund to date.
