About the Program
Startupbootcamp Scale San Francisco is an innovation program for post-revenue technology startups from all over the globe, launching in Silicon Valley by the global accelerator Startupbootcamp, five-university consortium of Starcamp and the leading early-stage technology seed fund StartersHub. Every stakeholder adds unique value to this partnership, officially recognized as “3S Landing Pad”, supporting the most promising post-revenue technology startups from all over the world.
This program offers a customised approach, focusing on the specific needs of the startups through mentoring and masterclasses. Empowering high-potential tech startups, we assure hands-on mentoring and free office locations in 3 different co-working spaces in Bay Area, along with immediate access to a top-notch network and vibrant community. We connect startups with the right people, give them marketing, PR support, organize sales and investor demo days.
Startupbootcamp Scale San Francisco is partnering with Global Scaling Academy, created to share the scaling experience of Silicon Valley with founders in ecosystems around the world and to spread the Blitzscaling methodology, a company-building and investment philosophy developed by Reid Hoffman and Chris Yeh, based on their direct experience as founders and investors, and research performed with dozens of leading scale-ups in Silicon Valley.
We are accepting 8-10 startups who will be invited to Silicon Valley for six months, provided with a nominal amount of funding, financial services, legal support and multiple office spaces in Silicon Valley to successfully enter the U.S. market and become global market players. During or after the program, StartersHub, together with various investors co-invests up to $250,000 to outstanding startups. Upon completion of the program, startups will gain access to our extensive Global Alumni network through which we provide relevant services and support.
The program is led by Cigdem Toraman. Cigdem has also led several Startupbootcamp Istanbul programs in the previous years and has an extensive background in technology, marketing, media, and commerce.
