What does Startupbootcamp provide?
Startupbootcamp is a mentorship driven program. Mentors drive the startups acceleration over the 3 month program – and often for months or years afterwards. The Startupbootcamp founders team, together with their group of international mentors, can open the door to nearly every investor, customer or partner.
The value is the quality of that network. The mentors work closely with the startups to develop their product, validate their business model, get their first pilot customers and aim to get funding at the end of the program.
Startupbootcamp facilitates this mentorship driven model by providing startups with the essential tools needed to have a concrete focus during the 3 month program.
These tools are:
- €15,000 towards living expenses for the team during the program,
- 6 months co-working space,
- over €150,000 in sponsored services and
- the platform to pitch to over 400 investors at Investor Demo Day.
Startupbootcamp can be found in Amsterdam, Berlin, Copenhagen, Dublin, Haifa and London.
