Saul on why Europe needs to keep seeding

Saul Klein was one of the speakers at the recent NextWeb conference in Amsterdam. His theme was one that is talked about regularly in the Euro tech venture scene. It co-incided neatly with the LastFm exit helping re-inforce Europe's credentials in enabling the creation of global tech companies
Take a look at Fred Destin's blogpost on the subject.
In addition to the debate, there is a lot of practical action going on. In case you haven't noticed, The Open Coffee Club, started by Saul is now an international phenomenon.
Now established in 50 cities in the world, it was envisaged only 14 weeks ago as a means of stoking the European ecosystem. London alone has 579 members.

Saul's presentation at NextWeb is here.


  1. Thanks for posting the slides, any idea if there is audio of the talk available anywhere?

    We will have video coverage of almost all presentations later on this week (a lot of editing to do).

    Saul's presentation set the tone perfectly for the day. I heard people quoting from it both on stage and in conversation. I came away from Amsterdam buzzing with ideas.
