Realtime Valley

Want to go East Coast with your startup? Join the virtual bootcamp!

“If you can make it there, you can make it everywhere!” Sings Frank Sinatra. swissnex Boston and New York are offering a bootcamp to expand your startup to their city.

Throughout the year swissnex Boston and swissnex in New York, in collaboration with Innosuisse, offer Swiss startups the opportunity to come to Boston or to New York to prepare for entry into the US market or to first validate their product. The Corona virus has made it difficult to plan travel, but we know that Swiss startups are still forging ahead with their internationalisation plans. The next bootcamp is a chance for them to work on their internationalisation strategies from their home in Switzerland and travel to the US at a later date.

This virtual bootcamp offers startups a unique opportunity to better understand the fundamental business processes in the US as well as acquire new contacts prior to their coming, making their time more efficient and productive when they travel in person to the US East Coast.

Never miss InTech insider information, top jobs and mandates. Sign-up here.

The 2-week bootcamp will feature fireside chats, toolbox sessions, office hours, and a virtual demo day event. It will take place from February 8 – 19, 2021. The demo day will be open to the public and it will be the only event people located in Switzerland will be able to join in addition to the local Boston and New York ecosystems overview.

You can also reach out to the swissnex startup program managers in Boston and New York to learn more. Or download this flyer: Bootcamp Info for Startups

Applications are now open for spring 2021. The deadline is December 1st.
