Seedcamp week has just finished, and I am very happy to have been part of it, even if it just was helping out the Seedcamp team getting the event to run as smoothly as possible. I got to meet many amazing people ranging from mentors who were helping out these years teams with their strategy, to VCs, the Seedcamp team, startup gurus such as Dave McClure, but also all the teams participating in Seedcamp week. The quality of the participating teams was simply phenomenal, and made me realize that the bar for tech startups keeps on getting raised higher and higher ! Even though I was at Seedcamp neither as a mentor, a VC, nor a participating team, everyone was extremely nice to talk to, seeing that we were eager to give up a week of our time to volunteer and get to know the tech startup community just a bit better. No amount of reading hackerNews or techcrunch will equal to actually seeing the teams pitch live, talking to them, seeing them excited, or listening to mentors/VCs talk about their startup careers.

Having spent the past week fully immersed in the European tech startup community, what else is there for me to do now, but to start reading my preview copy of “The Lean Startup” by Eric Ries, stop wasting time on the Internet, and start coding up some startup ideas that are sitting in my head!
