Thanks to the sponsors and mentors, the success of last year’s SmartCamp London is spilling over into this year’s event! With over 20 mentors and 7 sponsors from leading London entrepreneurial groups, IBM SmartCamp London looks to be another great success.
The October 8th event will be hosted at Level 39, where startups will be able to network with experienced entrepreneurs, technology investors and industry experts to gain support, exposure and resources for their technology startup. Applications are still open until midnight on September 12th, so there’s still plenty of time to apply for the chance to collaborate with IBM and take advantage of the unrivaled mentoring opportunities.
Similar to last year, some of our sponsors are also mentoring! Bindi Karia, for example, currently leads Silicon Valley Bank’s early stage efforts in Europe, will be on hand to offer her expertise and opinion to the startup participants.
Also returning from last year is Amit Pau of Entrepreneur Country! He has over 20 years expertise in the digital industry and has transformed multiple entrepreneurial companies, mentoring them from concept stage to scaling their operations for successful exits. His insights will be invaluable for the startups participating in SmartCamp.
Another exciting edition to this years mentoring panel is Peter Janes, the founder and CEO of Shopa, last year’s London SmartCamp winners. Being in the exact same situation a year ago, Peter brings a unique perspective and will, no doubt, be able to offer some very valuable advice to the startups.
These three are amongst a wide range of mentors with a high level of knowledge and expertise! This year’s event is definitely not one to miss, and the whole day promises to be a success! Register now to save your seat!
