Start Alliance: Enter new markets more easily!

What is the Start Alliance?

Today's startups are thinking global from the very start. That is why Start Alliance facilitates quickly and cheaply testing out new markets in North America, Europe or Asia to effectively evaluate new opportunities.

Are you a startup based in our partner cities? If so, this program could be for you. The Start Alliance is an exchange program created for those who are beyond the idea/prototype stage and have successfully launched in their domestic market. Start Alliance is designed to help startups who are interested in:

  • Expanding into new markets

  • Looking for international cooperation partners

  • Seeking to raise capital internationally

  • Recruiting international teams

There are two ways to participate on Start Alliance. Annual group programs are organized to each destination at different times of the year. Accepted startups can join one of these group programs and benefit from the experience based learning approach of participating in a group. Have a look on the events to be kept informed on upcoming delegations and application deadlines.

Accepted startups receive a full program of 2-4 weeks (depending on region) and get connected to the ecosystem of their choice. It includes free office space, access to startup events, mentoring and much more.

Start Alliance also supports individual startups who are interested in a specific city where the upcoming group programs don't suit their timeline. Such startups can get in touch directly with our partner organizations. They will help with first market information, and access to excellent startup networks in the respective startup community.
