Mini Seedcamp Ljubljana: 20 Web Startups and 80 Mentors from All Around Europe

Today 20 startups across Europe presented their projects in front of over 80 mentors in Ljubljana, Slovenia as part of Mini Seedcamp Ljubljana. Mini Seedcamp events are organized by the London-based startup accelerator Seedcamp. Most of the startups were from Southeastern Europe, although there was one team that came from Perth, Australia. A great distance to travel and I do hope it was worth it. What did the startups have to talk about?

    Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this website. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very hard to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and visual appearance. I must say you’ve done a fantastic job with this. In addition, the blog loads super fast for me on Opera. Excellent Blog!
