VentureOut’s programs are virtual and we’re loving it. Our international community has gained opportunites to connect like never before, and all in the comfort of their own home. From April 28th-29th of 2020, the VentureOut team worked with Business Finland to power our 2020 2-Day Finnishtech program.
Four startups from Finland had the chance to come together virtually, learning how to launch and raise capital in the US, all while getting connected with some of the top tech influencers and investors in NYC along the way!
For years Finland has been a leader of Europe’s tech industry and the world with top notable companies like Google, GE Healthcare, and Rolls-Royce has built hubs in Finland.
VentureOut is proud to have had the opportunity to organize multiple Finnishtech programs in partnership with Business Finland.
A 2-Day Virtual Private Conference:
Our one-week virtual private conference was an opportunity for the most promising Finland companies selected to become immersed in the tech community of New York, meeting virtually with leading startups, corporations, and venture investors.
VentureOut’s mission is to empower entrepreneurs with the education, resources, and connections needed to successfully raise capital and grow their business leveraging on all the opportunities NYC has to offer, and our 2-Day programs are designed to do just that.
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. During this program, our four awesome startups connected with Bonny Morlak, Founder and CEO of Tiltsta, and Emmanuel Debuyck, founder and CEO of AdWanted, both dominating companies in their space!
Investor & Company INSIGHTS
We gave our startups an opportunity to chat one on one with Paul Wigdor from Tribeca Early Stage Partners, and Lylan Masterman from White Star Capital, to get coveted insights on how to raise capital in the US.
U.S. Expansion Strategy
Scaling a startup means dealing with accounting, legal, and sometimes even immigration challenges. Our startups got to hear from our partner lawyers, who run some of the most active venture tech practices in NYC.
The Virtual Demo Day
Our first virtual Healthtech demo day event featured a panel of seasoned venture investors focused on innovations in the sector.
As each founder pitched to investors, tech enthusiasts around the world were invited join, giving startups an incredible opportunity to network with over 100 industry experts.
