Service description

A 7-day hybrid programme for early-stage startups from EIC Transition and Accelerator beneficiaries who have an interest in scaling and growth. The programme aims to equip early-stage German startups with the knowledge and tools needed to build and grow a scalable, global business right from the start.

Topics like identifying the right overseas market, product readiness in a new market, the legal perspective of internationalization or identifying the product-market-fit will be covered during the intense curriculum to set up the beneficiaries for the first steps in the direction of internationalization.
