What is Boot Camp

The Hive, JCube, BP Cube and Hub 21 are launching the Go Global Silicon Valley (GGSV) program in partnership with US Market Access Center (USMAC) to fast-track innovative emerging technology companies who are targeting global markets through Silicon Valley, the leading startup ecosystem for high-tech innovation and development in the world. The program consists of two phases.

Phase 1

Go Global Bootcamp Training

You will participate in a four-day intensive and interactive bootcamp delivered by USMAC and The Hive, JCube, BpCube, Hub21 teams. The bootcamp will be focused on the unique corporate culture of Silicon Valley and San Francisco. Content covers the best practices on value proposition development, business model refinement, pitch perfection and tips on generating meetings with potential prospective customers, partners and/or investors the ‘Silicon Valley way’.

You will have the opportunity for ongoing one-to-one US relevant mentoring sessions with the USMAC Team to help you apply the learning from the bootcamp to your business. On the last day of the bootcamp your pitches will be evaluated along with other important criteria, to assess your readiness to progress to the US-based Phase 2.

Phase 2

To the Usa

The best performing companies in the Boot Camp might have the opportunity to fly to the Usa for an intensive period of market validation.
