Graham’s belief seems in-line with the experience of Startup Bootcamp founder, Alex Farcet.

Startup Bootcamp, which is based in Copenhagen, is the first international branch of Boulder, Colorado-based TechStars, which is behind startups like BrightKite, Graphicly and Foodzie. Startup Bootcamp is just one example of how Y Combinator could be implemented in Europe. Zukunft-Innovation. CES 2011.
