Timeline of the U.S. Program

Getting Started

We will help you prepare for your new business journey. Together, we will work on identifying priorities, setting goals, and will give you an overview of what you should prepare before you start the program journey.

It’s all About the Base

You will participate in the German Accelerator Bootcamp – a series of virtual workshops tailored to equip you with the knowledge needed to enter the U.S. market. These sessions are hosted by our mentors, alumni, and team members.

Work, Work, Work

You will work with our team and mentors on individual topics to foster your company’s global expansion. The access to our community through different events and personal introductions will help you grow your foreign network and engage with the local ecosystem.

Your Time to Shine

At the end of the program, each company pitches in front of a mixed audience of investors, mentors, other startups, partners, media representatives and the local ecosystem at the virtual edition of “German Startup Night.”

Potential Program Extension

Each program participant can apply for a program extension based on their progress. The objective of the extension phase is to help startups grow further and gain a lasting foothold in the foreign market.

“I cherish the opportunity to work with startups and help them grow. The reservoir of ideas and the drive shown by entrepreneurs is the greatest motivation for me.”
