Abstract [en]

Cloud computing characteristics map to the needs of startups very well. Sowell that a new group of cloud specific startups is now rapidly evolving. Onone hand, one could argue that it is just the same active group that hasquickly picked up a new technology, but on the other hand the number ofstartups evolving and how fast they can get started and how far they can goon low funding is a game changer. Startups have always been very good atbootstrapping, getting as far as possible on no or very little funding. But now,with cloud computing and high quality open source software, better and lessexpensive network, a more open mobile market, and more evolved customerbase, the bootstrapping can take you very far, possibly all the way to a selfsupported profitable business.For investors the market is also changing, creating a need for very early stage,close-to-the-founder, technology knowledgeable services — the seed accelera-tors. The seed accelerators act as an early investor — helping the startupswith technology decisions — and at the same time helping future investors inthe identification of interesting objects.
