Venture Partner programme to fuel growth of European startups and scaleups

Seedrs, a private investment platform with over £2BN in investments recorded to date, has launched the Seedrs Venture Partner programme, a new curated community for VCs, accelerators, ecosystem builders and serial entrepreneurs. 

Seedrs’ Venture Partner community will bring together established and emerging investors and influencers in private investing to support one another through global deal flow, mentorship, and collaboration to help founders get further ahead.

Seeders’ Venture programme’s first cohort represents the breadth and depth of Europe’s startup ecosystem and includes the likes of Julian Callede, Co-founder, Dan Murray-Serter of and Yang Li, startup growth expert, entrepreneur and former Forbes 30 under 30 participant.

Partners within this carefully curated community share a common mission to build a fairer, equitable and sustainable world. The Seedrs team and its Venture partners will regularly share deal flow, including access to global deals through the relationship with US platform Republic. It will also provide the best support and finance for their founders as well as nurture members' professional development by sharing news, knowledge, experience, and wisdom.

Jeff Kelisky, CEO of Seedrs, said: “We are creating something special – an active community of experienced investors and operators that will share ideas, opportunities, events, and news that will support ambitious startups both inside and outside the Seedrs ecosystem. Furthermore, the programme's ability to connect members globally through the Seedrs/Republic partnership will open up new and unique funding opportunities in this challenging economic climate.”

Seedrs Venture Partners programme is open to venture capitalists, accelerators, ecosystem builders and founders who are experts, mentors, and leaders in their field. Seedrs is also committed to ensuring underrepresented venture partners play a significant role within the community, in recognition of closing the funding gap for diverse founders and building a more inclusive entrepreneurial ecosystem.

Applications for cohort 2 are open now.
