The numerous innovation programs we ran with Startup Basecamp for our startup accelerator program had the goal of immersing our startups in the Silicon Valley ecosystem and helping them make meaningful connections. They were very successful, and the startups really enjoyed the atmosphere. Working with Startup Basecamp was a delight, they are very committed, and their main concern was to make our experience memorable, and they managed to do it gracefully.
The one week deep-dive into the Silicon Valley ecosystem left me with new insights, contacts and a greater understanding of why this truly is an un-rivaled habitat for innovation and entrepreneurship. A transformative experience designed by the wonderful and always attentive team who generously shared their experience and great network.
Our week in San Francisco was a unique and unforgettable experience. The team provided a perfect infrastructure and introduced us to inspiring startups, VC´s and leading tech companies from the Silicon Valley ecosystem. The Startup Basecamp founders are incredibly passionate about what they do and always try to help out wherever they can. This makes Startup Basecamp a perfect starting point for people who want to build a network, work focused and drive forward a specific project or generate ideas in the center for entrepreneurial development.
We spent only one week in San Francisco and Startup Basecamp helped our group of startups to make the most out of it. We were amazed about how well connected they are with a big network of entrepreneurs, VCs and investors willing to share knowledge and experiences about silicon valley particularities. We had brilliant talks where we learned so much and so fast and at the same time feeling warm-hearted welcome.
The week was unbelievably enriching. The content of the program thoroughly engaged with a broad range of topics, all of which were very relevant to my ambition as a young entrepreneur and the networking that we got access to was more than one could hope for. In a matter of one week, each of us got introduction to founders and executives of well-known accelerator programs, startups and the likes. We also met with renowned professors of the University of Stanford and Berkeley. I can truly say I have never gotten more productive insights out of only 5 days in my life. Thank you very much!
When leaving for San Francisco, I had high hopes and was expecting to really dive into the famous Silicon Valley. The amazing Startup Basecamp team gave us access to their network of entrepreneurs, investors and experts. From early-stage startups to mature tech companies and from accelerators to prestigious universities, we didn’t just scratch the surface – we went deep into what makes Silicon Valley so special. It definitely was a unique (and exhausting!) experience that provided countless valuable insights on so many different levels.
