Startupbootcamp launching first U.S. program in Miami — VIDEO

MIAMI, Fla. — Europe’s largest business incubator is coming to the U.S. for the first time, and Miami will be the inaugural location.

The Miami program will focus on supporting and scaling startups in digital health.

Startupbootcamp was founded in 2010 in Copenhagen with the core idea of supporting the world’s best entrepreneurs as they grow their startups. Soon other amazing entrepreneurs joined the Startupbootcamp network to create programs around Europe, and by 2012 there were five programs in the network.

By 2014, Startupbootcamp had expanded to quickly become the largest startup accelerator in Europe and one of the top 3 largest in the world, with programs on numerous continents and a network spanning hundreds of cities around the world.

Each Startupbootcamp program provides direct access to connections that matter most in the startup’s industry. Over a three-month program, startups meet more than 100 partners, investors, and mentors that take a hands-on role helping the company develop their product, validate their business model, secure pilot customers, and raise funding.

Many of these connections become key advisors and actively engage with the startups for years to come. Startupbootcamp invests the equivalent of $16,000 dollars in each startup taking part in the program to cover living expenses in addition to providing six months in an extremely supportive co-working space, over $1,000,000 in deals from partners including Google, Paypal, AWS, and many others, and the opportunity to pitch to over 400 investors at Demo Day.
