Ever wanted to go global? Or, better yet, you have already been considering it? We found out about another opportunity for you to do so.
Last week, we reported on the global launch of iCatapult – a technology accelerator that goes by a motto as straightforward as “Get out of the continent”. Alongside itstwo-stage approach designed to enable to startups develop their business and enter the global market, iCatapult is now collaborating with Vienna-based STARTeurope and the New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) to introduce entrepreneurs to a 3-day educational programme, according to press information.
The World to NYC (W2NYC) initiative will take place on May 6-8, and for the first time, will focus on CEE-based companies, after being to Latin America, England, China, and Singapore. The programme recruits startups, who are serious about expanding internationally, and provides them with networking opportunities, connections to potential business partners as well as information on upcoming events in the area. Companies can use the rest of the week to set up private business meetings.
iCatapult and STARTeurope have already initiated the recruitment process. Submissions will be accepted through the “Take the Interview” application process.
For more information on the NYC tech scene, you can watch the live stream of a panel discussion between NYC-based entrepreneurs, experts, and VCs. The broadcast will take place on February 21 from 15:30-17:00 CET.
