This year, Startup Sesame is running accelerators to access tech events in four different sectors:
- mobility programme focuses on transport and mobility startups
- entertainment programme is dedicated to creative entrepreneurs, including music, video, gaming and publishing
- DeepTech programme is for IP intensive companies like lifesciences, aerospace, clean energy, robotics, agtech and computing
- Europe programme is for all startups focused on other areas
Each of this year’s selected startups will receive a personalised curriculum, which will help them identify which conferences are most relevant according to their business objectives. Teams will also benefit from pre-event coaching, including event strategy guidance and networking best-practices.
Season four startups are invited to connect and collaborate with a pool of more than 30 mentors from around the world.
In its annual report, Startup Sesame surveyed 3,500 entrepreneurs – and 91% said that they believe tech events generate benefits, so apply here before March 1st.
