From October 21st through the 25th of 2019, the VentureOut team worked with Breizh America to power our Breizh Amerika Startup Contest program! In the French one-week US market expansion program, startups from Brittany, France learned how to launch and raise capital in the US and got connected with some of the top tech influencers and investors in NYC.
VentureOut is proud to have had the opportunity to organize Brittany programs on behalf of our partner.
A ONE-WEEK HYPER ACCELERATOR PROGRAM:
Our one-week hyper-accelerator was an opportunity for the most promising early-stage technology companies from the Brittany region in France, to become immersed in the tech communities of New York, meeting with leading U.S. startups, corporations, and venture investors. We empowered our international entrepreneurs with the education, resources, and connections needed to successfully raise capital to launch their business in the U.S. market.
Pictured below: some highlights of the program.
WORKSHOPS & MENTORING
Education and Mentoring are the backbones of any VentureOut program. By partnering with thought leaders in key areas, we give our startups an unfair advantage by arming them with best practices used to scale the most successful companies in Silicon Valley.
INVESTOR OFFICE VISITS & COMPANY INSIGHTS
We gave our startups an opportunity to sit down in a fireside chat setting with some of the top investors and entrepreneurs in the tech space in NYC.
THE PITCH NIGHT
The pitch night is the capstone of the Breizh Amerika Startup Contest program. We started with networking, cocktails, and hors-d’oeuvres. Following a round of introductions, each startup pitched for 3 minutes and received feedback from each investor on the panel. The night was capped off with more networking and refreshments.
