“It’s [...] striking how some accelerators are innovating and launching start-up exchange programs between different countries, such as Startup Exchange Program in Portugal and five other countries...”
Startup Exchange Program is a mentor driven exchange program designed to scale-up startups. We select the most resourceful, creative, and disruptive startups to move to an European tech hub for 4 to 6 weeks supported by a local incubator/co-working space.
In a world where communication technologies are nearly universal and free, most startups have the potential to scale their business and become global companies. With all this, it is hard not to be an optimist and not want to work with startups from all over the world and help them expand to new frontiers.
We will select 20 for-profit, technology based companies looking to expand into new markets. And we are teaming up with 8 incubators/co-working spaces that will host and support 2 startups for a period of 4 to 6 weeks.
