Startup Scaleup’s tailored 6-month accelerator will make sure that our IoT startups will have all they need to succeed internationally. The programme is a mix of events and resources both online and at the hubs underpinned by a foundation of unique services, experienced mentors, IoT experts, developers and facilities.
The journey begins with IoT’ers week at your home hub; an intense schedule of activities, and workshops that covers all the basics for scaling your business. This week is also a chance to get to intimately know your fellow teams and us too. We will also take this time to agree some serious KPIs.
IoT’ers Week 2016 Dates:
20th June – 24th June: Vilnius, Lithuania and Zoetermeer, Netherlands
27th June – 1st July: Dublin, Ireland and Madrid, Spain
After this week the accelerator moves online with further workshops as well as “Ask Me Anything” sessions with top startups players. Previous AMAs included Philip Moynagh, Vice President, Internet of Things Group at Intel, Dan Marom, crowdfunding expert and Jerry Yang, investor & founder of Hardware Club.
