Match-making Seed Forum brings together startups and investors
The international Seed Forum investor conference held in Tallinn brought together local startups and international financial investors.
Seven startups pitched to 80 conference participants — IoT Technologies, Decider LAB, Vamp Digital, Businessive (from Estonia), Usetrace (from Finland), and iGotClient and Sonarworks (from Latvia).
Rando Pärna, Country Manager of Seed Forum Estonia, said that they have trained more than 200 companies and found investors for more than 70 of them. He added that the uniqueness of Seed Forum training is to give companies investor-readiness in a really short time.
Pärna added that Seed Forum plans to grow five-fold over the next eight years in Estonia.
Seed Forum has been active in Estonia since 2005. The next Seed Forum in Tallinn is scheduled for 4 March 2014.
