School of Everything and Seedcamp

So the word is out — School of Everything has been picked as one of the top 20 start-ups in Europe for Seedcamp — an intensive week of mentoring and coaching by some of the world’s best entrepreneurs and internet experts. Five of the 20 companies will be awarded €50,000 at the end of the week.

The full list was announced last night on the FT site and there’s a piece in the paper today which gives more background on Seedcamp and what it’s trying to achieve.

I’m looking forward to it. I have a feeling it’s going to be great fun.

Good company

Nice to know that the Second Chance Tuesday folks think the School of Everything is exciting enough to be worth a mention. They put us in their write-up of companies who came along to the last event (which was excellent by the way — Michael Birch of Bebo is a very, very good speaker). From the 400 or so people who came along, here’s their list:

“AOL, Betfair, Carbon Heroes, Cominded, eBay, Firebox, Figleaves, Freshminds, Google, Joost, Lovefilm, MOO, Moreover Technologies, PayPal, The School of Everything, SpoyIt, WeeWorld, Yahoo!”

Oh, and sign up for the announcement about our launch. I’m not saying when it’s going to be but things are getting exciting at Everything HQ.
