What to expect
The programme is designed to help you make your business thrive and suited for international growth – through 4 months of collaboration with personal mentors, experts, CSE staff and other startups.
You will attend monthly workshop sessions, take part in facilitated group works, go abroad to a targeted market and get a unique chance to continuously exchange ideas with a broader forum.
The programme starts in November 2017 and will run for 4 months. Startup founders are not expected to spend full time during this period working on their startups, but must expect an increased work load.
Alumni from Go Grow are expected to stay engaged. Alumni founders are expected to coach applicants who make the pre-selection on how to handle the selection interview. Alumni founders help to mentor founders during their time in Go Grow. And alumni become a support group for each other after exit. See earlier Go Grow participants: http://go-grow.dk/startups/
