Virtual Startup & Entrepreneur Program STEP
STEP USA Virtual: U.S. Market Validation Program
Get a head-start on your future U.S. market expansion!
The German American Chamber of Commerce New York introduced STEP USA in 2014. Since then, more than 300 companies participated in the program and are now part of our Alumni Network. Following the proven track-record of STEP USA, we created STEP Virtual, a 4-day immersion program for startups and entrepreneurs uniquely designed and adapted in direct response to the current needs of startups to enable companies to join and work from anywhere.
We know that entrepreneurs need to move their businesses forward and they can't put their operations on hold. We have carefully taken into consideration the needs of German companies looking to get a concrete blueprint to grow their business at home and across the Atlantic.
Unlike traditional programs, operating virtually through an online platform allows us to reach more founders and deliver broader resources to the participants. Through close mentorship, connections and access to key startup resources we are here to help you reach your next milestone, immerse yourself in the U.S tech & innovation ecosystem and successfully grow your business from home.
We look forward to welcoming our cohort! A complete list of the participating companies can be found here.
If you are an investor or a speaker with experience in investing in or working with startups, and are interested in getting involved in this program, please contact Irene Fuchs (email@example.com).
