You are a venture team, 1 to 3 years from launching your product, moving your focus from technical innovation to business preparation. You understand that business insights become critically important for success. You have challenges such as: What makes your company attractive for investors? How do you prepare best for a next-investor round? Which countries should your product be launched in? How do you prepare for marketing the product? What should the management team look like in a business environment?
The program combines in-depth training and mentoring by the best serial entrepreneurs, marketing experts, and investors from the United States and different European countries. The program is US- and Europe-based for teams who want to be maximally prepared for their scaling-up. Scaling-up involves finding a next investor, scaling-up with a (corporate) partner, and finding the best entrance strategy to new markets. Mentors can guide you through this complex decision process and connect you with experienced experts around the globe.
It is a unique combination of a global investment journey, training, and mentoring that helps you truly learn in a pressure-cooker setting and apply your learning to your global business strategy. Our experts provide you with honest feedback to push you further. Participants will be able to pitch to US and European investors, develop adequate branding and marketing of the overall venture, and meet partners from the United States and Europe within a very short time. All this takes place in a warm, personal, and open atmosphere as a fertile ground to learn, develop in-depth contacts, and make the right strategic choices.
