Virtual Accelerator

Grow your business at home while laying the groundwork for future US expansion!

Our virtual accelerator program is designed to support international startups interested in learning from experts in the US market to grow their business at home and globally.

The program is divided into two modules (Fundraising & Sales/Marketing), two-weeks long each. By the end of each module, startups will walk away with learnings and tools from the US market that they can apply to their business immediately, while getting a head-start on future US market entry.

Each module consists of daily learning sessions facilitated by mentors and experts, virtual networking opportunities, and events.
