uberVU on the move – onwards & upwards

Since our Seedcamp investment in October 2008 we’ve watched Vladimir and the team at uberVU go from strength to strength. Closing funding rounds with Eden Ventures, closing impressive partnership deals with Nielsen, winning impressive customers like PayPal and building out their team in the US market.

We worked with the founders to hire their CEO Mark Pascarella and since then the company has continued on their hockey stick trajectory. uberVU has launched the new version of Signals and moved to the Cambridge Innovation Center  in Kendall Square to take advantage of the talent, funding opportunities and entrepreneurial energy in the area and the company plans to quadruple employees this year.

We are looking forward to watching the company continue to power ahead and take a leadership position in the social media monitoring space.

Four new investments from Seedcamp Tallinn 2012

Congratulations to our four new investments




Antavo: travelling all the way from Hungary, this ambitious team showed an impressive promotion building platform for SMEs to market their offerings on various platforms – a slick product with big potential.




Bukit: Sarah lived through the bad experiences of having personal debt and was fed up with the status quo. That’s why she founded Bukit, which allows consumers to settle their debts through a new platform.





MightyFingers: absolutely rocking HTML5 gaming engine performance; our first 100-per-cent Latvian team is certainly going places.





Sayduck: a fantastic usage of Augmented Reality bridging the gap between online and offline retail experience by helping customers visualize real world items in their environment (Via Sayduck’s app, Carlos is able to hold a virtual table below). This Finnish team impressed us with their dynamic approach to rolling their solution out to market.


The Next Web 2012

Rosemary and Brett attended The Next Web conference in Amsterdam on April 26th and 27th.

On the geek side Robert Scoble’s talk on the future of technology was fascinating as was CEO of Evernote Phil Libin’s Keynote.

The star of the event however was Klara, the very well behaved cow, who took the leading role in a clever twist on the Million Dollar Home Page. Users were asked to click on three squares in the virtual field where you thought Klara would drop her cow pat.

Congratulations are due to Nuji one of our Seedcamp portfolio companies won the Best Web App award at the event.

Thanks to the Coen and Herman for the Henq Invest VIP party on Thursday, which was great fun.

Being only an hour away Amsterdam is definitely one of our favourite event destinations.
