We help foreign startups break into the US market
Expanding into the US market is critical for international entrepreneurs to gain confidence in a mature innovation ecosystem and raise capital from investors. However, they usually lack the monetary resources, the know-how overseas, and the framework to make the jump.
Dat Ventures delivers a 3-month soft-landing accelerator program in Boston for international founders. The mission is to be the gateway for growth-stage startups to enter the United States, while helping generate an economic and cultural impact in their countries of origin.
Housing + Private Office Space. Apply by December 1st to get flight tickets too.
Throughout the 3-month program, Dat Ventures' members are guided through a curriculum that covers key topics affecting their expansion to the US market. Guest speakers — generally serial entrepreneurs, investors and university professors — lead sessions following different formats: lectures, workshops, one-to-one mentorship, etc.
Dat Ventures partners with local educational institutions and startup communities to find talented interns, called Dat Ventures Fellows. These are categorized by skill and matched with Dat Ventures Members so they can become temporary employees. Dat Venture Fellows are a great resource for time-constrained founders that need additional manpower.
