WELCOME is a project developed under the Startup Europe Initiative and funded by the EU Commission, enabling tech entrepreneurs to grow their business across borders and to get access to the right combination of funding.
To achieve this goal WELCOME lays bridges for startups from four vibrant EU ecosystems —Berlin, Dublin, Milan, Madrid&Salamanca— by connecting them to the key players in each environment.

The Silicon Valley+EU Roadshow is an extraordinary opportunity provided by WELCOME to startups willing to pack up and travel to meet investors, corporates and technology players in Silicon Valley and in the five ecosystems.

Two startups from Berlin, Dublin, Milan and Madrid&Salamanca, for a total of eight, will be selected to spend a three-weeks immersion period at the MindTheBridge Startup School in San Francisco where they will learn to pitch their business to investors and get the contacts and knowledge for a soft-landing in Silicon Valley.
Once back, the 8 will embark in a two-week Pan-European tour that will enable them to explore the above-mentioned ecosystems and to get exposure to investors, angels, corporates and medias.

These activities will be at no cost to entrepreneurs; selected startups will receive a full waiver of the Silicon Valley School tuition for one founder, and a 50% discount for additional co-founders, while travel & accommodation expenses for the Silicon Valley trip (for one founder ) and the European Roadshow (for two cofounders) will be covered by WELCOME.

We are looking for tech-focused, visionary and high-profile entrepreneurs that are willing to accept the challenge to take their startup to the next level.
In order to be eligible, startups need to be based -or in process of being based- in one of the European ecosystems connected by WELCOME project.
