Green Digital SCALEit - Smart Energy & Water 2020

Are you a green digital startup with global ambitions? Do you seek new insights, advice and network enabling your company to scale faster? Then join our program in Silicon Valley.

Scaling green digital solutions is key to decarbonizing our societies. As an entrepreneur in a digital startup, you can learn valuable lessons from Silicon Valley about scaling up your business. Join our team of dedicated commercial advisors across innovation and exports with a specific sector-focus on energy & water for the Green Digital SCALEit.

Network and knowledge are key elements for any startup, and the Green Digital SCALEit program will provide you with both. We will introduce you to entrepreneurs, corporate innovators, corporate VCs, accelerators and incubators, business experts and other service providers. To help you navigate the Silicon Valley ecosystem, we will also connect you to sector experts and practitioners who will provide invaluable feedback on your business model and strategy while opening up opportunities for green optimization and growth. 

Here are some of the questions we will focus on during the program: How do you scale successfully? How do you pitch ideas to key stakeholders? What are the organizational challenges when your company grows quickly? What does a Silicon Valley investor look for in founders and startups? How do you set up your company in the US? What are the shortcuts to enter the US market successfully?

The program will be kicked off with a pre-session where we will get to know each other, brief you on the basics of Silicon Valley, and provide you with preliminary feedback on your business model and pitch. The purpose is to get you prepared for Silicon Valley and to get you to know how to pitch your company. 

During the five-day program in the US, you will be introduced to the Silicon Valley ecosystem and have a tailored program laid out for you, focusing on green digitalization related to energy and water solutions.
