Silicon Valley Accelerate / July 10, 2019
Three reasons to apply to our Silicon Valley Accelerate Programme
Applications now open for #SVA20
Each year, we take a group of UK-based tech entrepreneurs to Silicon Valley, where they meet some of the most influential people in the tech industry. Applications for our 2020 programme are now open!
Group sizes are kept to a maximum of 10 people, giving each person valuable contact time with experts and encouraging strong connections for the future.
Here are three core reasons for founders to attend.
Gain the right skills to lead a high-growth tech company
Starting, growing and scaling a tech company comes with a unique set of challenges. Founders who want to lead a team to success need to have the right mindset. The SVA programme includes a set of masterclasses that focuses on personal development and leadership, giving you the right tools to face whatever comes next on your entrepreneurial journey.
Understand what it takes to succeed in Silicon Valley and the US
If you’re interested in expanding internationally or raising investment in the US, this programme opens up the right conversations with the right people. You’ll learn the differences between the UK and the US, and gain clarity on how to position yourself to be successful across the pond. The Silicon Valley Accelerate programme facilitates meetings with top executives, founders and investors.
