Nitro: the extreme acceleration event
Startups in the Growth phase can apply for Nitro: the Extreme Acceleration Event. The event is tailored to the specific needs of startups and will be taking place on the 1st and 2nd December 2016 in Sophia Antipolis, France. Interested startups can apply for Nitro on F6S until November 6 2016 (new Deadlne).
After being selected the startup will be contacted for the pre work on their chosen topics.
During the event, 20 international mature startups will work together with consultants and business angels from Capgemini Consulting, Europe Unlimited, Inovamais, INTRASOFT International, the European Crowdfunding Network, and the European Business Angels Network on topics ranging from customer journey to investment readiness, from sales to innovation management.
Topics Summary (see the extended description and the trainers profiles)
- Investment Readiness
- Pitching Session
- Growth & Internationalisation through European Funding
- Growth & Internationalisation Strategies: Sales
- Customer Journey Design
- Intermediaries to Innovation Management in the Digital Era
- Innovation Governance
- Negotiating a Technology Agreement
- Grow with the Crowd
The key is that the startups themselves choose which topics they want to work on before, during and after the event. They will have the opportunity to use the knowledge and experience of these groups of consultants.
Even more so, delegates of large corporations and investors are present, creating the opportunity for the startups to present their products and receive feedback from representatives of their actual target group and customers. In short, a great opportunity to apply the new insights from the consulting sessions against the standards of the market.
All of this will be set up in a truly interactive way, no long presentations but real working sessions to create value for startups.
Nitro: the Extreme Acceleration Event is open for startups that have the following profile:
- Mature startup that already has a (small) customer base in the domestic market and is on the brink of international expansion
