A sprinkle of European flavor, SGE partners with Polish VC HardGamma
January 13, 2013 by Gwendolyn Regina T
At SGE, we always strive to unearth the most promising startups from around Asia and place it in front of you, our dear reader. At the same time, there is also so much innovation happening around the world we track on a daily basis and for key ones that we think you should know, we share them on our Twitter and Facebook accounts.
However, we are still hungry to serve our audience better – to help you keep your finger on the pulse of global innovation.
So we have taken a step further by partnering with Polish venture capital firm, HardGamma and its accelerator program, GammaRebels, to have them curate interesting companies that they come across and for SGE to feature them. For a start, SGE will have a section dedicated to featuring their portfolio companies.
I have been volunteering my time by mentoring at GammaRebels since their pioneer batch of startups more than a year ago and recently did another round of Skype calls with the second batch of startups. And I continue to be impressed by what the Google for Entrepreneurs-partnered accelerator have done for the Polish startup scene, especially after a recent trip to visit the new HardGamma and GammaRebels office and speaking at their launch.
So look forward to hearing about some outside-Asia innovation and startups from time to time!
