From March 2nd through 5th of 2020, the VentureOut team worked with the German American Chamber of Commerce in New York (GACCNY) to power our German STEP NYC program!
In the German tech one-week US market expansion program, startups 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 German programs on behalf of our partner. Our Incredible and longstanding partnership partnership with the GACC is what makes our German programs possible.
A One-week hyper accelerator Program:
Our one-week hyper-accelerator was an opportunity for the most promising early-stage tech companies from Germany to become immersed in the tech communities of New York, meeting with leading U.S. startups, corporations, and venture investors. We empower our international entrepreneurs with the education, resources, and connections needed to successfully raise capital to launch their business in the U.S. market.
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.
U.S. Expansion Strategy
For any foreign startup, expanding to a new country means dealing with accounting, legal and immigration challenges. Our startups got to hear from a panel of lawyers and accountants that run some of the most active venture tech practices in NYC as well as representatives of the French institutions helping startups in their international expansion.
Pictured below: some of the highlights of the program.
The Pitch Night
The pitch night is the capstone of the STEP NYC program. We started with networking, cocktails, and hors-d’oeuvres. Following a round of introductions, then each startup pitched for 2 minutes and received feedback from each investor on the panel. The night was capped off with more networking and refreshments.
