Startupbootcamp Alumni, London Demo Day, and Silicon Valley Demo Day
Startupbootcamp has appointed a full-time Alumni Growth Manager to support and engage with our growing pool of alumni (our programs produced 60 startups in 2013 alone). All Startupbootcamp startups join the Alumni Growth Program which includes additional Investor Demo Days in London and a two-week Silicon Valley trip. During the trip to Silicon Valley, we connect to key valley-based investors, executives, and mentors. Check out the pictures from our London Demo Day and the Silicon Valley tour 2013.
We like to keep things simple and transparent. All Startupbootcamp teams of the same city program will sign the same contract. Contracts may vary between different city program locations.
In return, Startupbootcamp gets 8% equity in each company. We don't take board seats, and we don't get preferred shares. We strive to be the world's most useful co-founders.
