A call for future scaleups: join the Welcome Silicon Valley + Euro-Roadshow!

Join the Welcome Silicon Valley + Euro-Roadshow

For web startups that aim to scale up internationally, being born global is a must. To do so, it is key to expand one’s own network, always learn new skills and get in touch with the right people in the local community of investors and corporates.

At Mind the Bridge, we always made our mission to build bridges that help entrepreneurs achieve those goals.

That is why we are proud to support the latest initiative launched by Welcome, a project powered by Startup Europe and the European Commission. If you are a web entrepreneur leading a startup in Berlin, Dublin, Milan, Madrid or Salamanca, read on: this is for you.

Apply here to the Welcome “Silicon Valley + Euro-Roadshow” program.

If selected, your startup will be eligible to take part to a unique program including training activities, meetings with investors and corporate members, networking sessions and workshops from Europe to the Silicon Valley.

In Silicon Valley, startups will take part to our top-notch Startup School program.

There, you will learn the core of the Silicon Valley Way of doing business from top mentors, take part to workshops and modules about trending, technical topics, get insights on how to scale up internationally and get prepared to manage your company’s growth, milestone after milestone. All of this, fully immersed within the culture of the most thriving ecosystem of the world, along with site visits and suggested networking activities.

Back in Europe, you will take part to a roadshow of all 5 Welcome ecosystems, set up during local large tech events. There, our partners will support you by organizing meetings with local investors and corporate members, networking opportunities and  unique workshops.

Last year the Welcome project supported 7 selected, top EU startups. Among them, some achieved pretty amazing results: Artomatix has been selected to participate to TechCrunch Disrupt 2015 while being in San Francisco, the folks at Papem started working with international top brands and Openback expanded internationally.


You just need to apply via this F6S form by April 8.

Be fast, make sure to check eligibility requirements and include all needed information, especially an outstanding, impressive pitch deck.

The Welcome project committee will then select 2 startups each from Milan, Dublin and Madrid/Salamanca, and 3 startups from Berlin for a total of 9 international companies that will embark on this journey of a lifetime.

You are very “Welcome” to come aboard and find out Silicon Valley (SV)!
