SeedBlink’s Tech Investors Academy returns for 3rd edition with practical insights for startup investors

A self-paced, four-week online course with a mix of theory, practical case studies, and live sessions aimed at intermediate to advanced investors.


SeedBlink announces the launch of the third edition of its highly anticipated Tech Investors Academy (TIA #3), an innovative learning course designed for both intermediate and experienced investors looking to sharpen their investment acumen in the tech landscape.

This four-week, self-paced online course is tailored for both intermediate and experienced investors eager to refine their skills in the evolving tech sector.

The course offers a balanced mix of theory, case studies, and live sessions that delve into sophisticated investment strategies and legal intricacies. It is structured into four comprehensive weekly lessons, delivered by SeedBlink’s own experts—Robbin Hoogstraten, Angel Hadjiev, Eric Bartha, and Andrei Hancu—and notable guest speakers from the venture capital and academic fields, including Tihomir Dyankov, Willem Hulsink, Oden Vallien, and Markus Oberg.

The curriculum addresses key topics like deal assessment, portfolio building, legal conditions in investment rounds, cross-border investment strategies, and liquidity in secondary markets. These areas are crucial for investors looking to navigate the complexities of Europe’s tech ecosystem and the associated economic and geopolitical challenges.

“The Tech Investors Academy was a straightforward way to learn from passionate experts in the field. It helped me structure my understanding of startup dynamics significantly,” said Horia Hotaran, previous participant at TIA.

“For me, the Academy is a hub for brainstorming and understanding business potential from various angles, guided by seasoned entrepreneurs and scholars,” shared Mihai G., previous participant at TIA.

The program not only provides expert insights but also includes interactive elements like a live "Ask Me Anything" session on June 6th at 5:30 PM, practical assignments, and opportunities for participants to win exclusive prizes.

In addition to educational benefits, TIA #3 offers a robust platform for networking, allowing participants to connect and exchange ideas with peers, enhancing their overall learning experience.

Registration is open until June 5th, with the course beginning the next day. Participants can sign up through our dedicated online platform.

For current SeedBlink Elite investors and Club members, the Tech Investors Academy is offered at no additional cost. Non-members can now join the SeedBlink Club with a 40% discount, gaining full access to the Academy along with other Club benefits.

As a startup founder, I am happy to witness SeedBlink’s dedication to expanding their support for early-stage companies beyond funding, towards a healthy equity management via Nimity. A solution to help better navigate relations with stakeholders, employees and future investors is needed in Europe. Less admin work and bringing transparency to the cap table are immediate benefits I was able to test.

SeedBlink is a transparent solution that connects entrepreneurs with great business plans, with investors, at different stages in their development. It is a great tool for us, a democratization of access to funding, I would say.

We really loved the SeedBlink journey. We reached our fundraising goal within hours of launching. About 100 investors joined our vision and invested almost $2 million in FLOWX.AI through the Private Deal Room. At the same time, working with SeedBlink to prepare for the funding round was an excellent exercise for our entire team, and we received and felt the support from the SeedBlink team members who took on an advisory role.

SeedBlink made the (investment) process run smoothly. We appreciate all the support SeedBlink's professional team has provided.

It's important to look for and choose a platform that you resonate with, that shares your mission with, a platform & its people with which you feel you can have good working relationships. we got an excellent relationship going forward; we talked a lot and we were in touch on a lot of matters and I think this was important. Having people who believe in your idea is of great help.


Kimmo Rytkönen

Running the financing round was like any other fundraising; we had to be active in our community as well as in SeedBlink's investor community. After the launch, everything happened very quickly, and SeedBlink organized several pitch events for investors, which we found very useful for the round momentum.


Svilen Rangelov

Founder and CEO


We immediately clicked with the SeedBlink team as their fundraising expertise was immediately obvious and their no-nonsense approach really appealed to us. After all, fundraising is only a means to an end, and we liked how the SeedBlink team was really focusing on supporting us and on getting things done.


Mihai Darzan



Our main expectation has been to raise the amount we were aiming for, and both rounds launched on Seedblink exceeded our targets, so we’re very happy with that! Even though the launched funding campaigns have been purely crowdfunding rounds, we are thrilled to actually receive extra support from some of the investors, who have chosen to get involved and help us generate product awareness, whenever they can.


Catalin Mester



I am recommending SeedBlink without hesitation, to every founder that raises capital, especially early-stage tech startups. SeedBlink is a crowd investment platform that will also provide their startup with visibility, for Angels and VCs.


Dragoș Iliescu

Founder and CEO


In the early stages, we have been funded by several early (angel) investors, and one and a half year ago through an equity crowdfunding campaign on SeedBlink. Of course, this impacted our growth in many positive ways, partly due to the cash influx that, evidently, was sorely needed, but in a larger part due to the fact that our responsibility towards our shareholders has become more stringent and explicit, becoming embodied in our market approach.


Costin Tudor

Co-founder and CEO


Given the accelerated growth we observed at the end of last year and the beginning of 2021, we want a new capitalization, quickly. This is a bridge round that we will use for one year, and the advantages that SeedBlink offers are the speed at which we were able to list for financing and the experience that we gain as a result of this public listing, similar to a listing on the stock exchange.


Diwaker Singh

Co-Founder & CEO


As a platform that only serves technology ventures, SeedBlink can connect the start-up with more than just money. SeedBlink investors are primarily technocrats who understand the objectives of the fundraising company and are also able to post-funding contribute with business opportunities. The minimum investment threshold, and technology focus, differentiates SeedBlink from other fundraising platforms. A perfect fit for a technology start-up seeking intelligent funding.


Florin Stoian

Co-Founder & CEO


SeedBlink boosted our brand exposure and facilitated the financial support we were seeking. Having a campaign on the platform allowed us not only to meet a team of professionals - that guided and helped us prepare the necessary materials - but also opened doors for increasing our brand awareness and have discussions with VCs & angel investors we have never reached before. This campaign gave us the encouragement we needed to push the product further, while the record-breaking fundraising (only 2 hours from the launch of the campaign!) was a great confirmation that our product is needed in this market and that we should continue innovating.

Epic Visits

SeedBlink has created a vital ecosystem for startups at the beginning of their journey by equipping entrepreneurs with expertise, encouraging honest and sometimes uncomfortable but necessary discussions about risks and vulnerabilities through a suite of tools, and facilitating connections with investors who share the founders' vision and can contribute to their success. I have greatly appreciated the constant support of Eric and the entire team at all stages of the campaign. Thank you so much!
