Training opportunity

Our intense 3 weeks training from May 18 to June 4 (online) will get you prepared to enter your market with a detailed story, business plan, sales and marketing strategies. The training, which is designed for WorldStartup’s portfolio companies, is part of the Airport Technology Lab of Rotterdam The Hague Innovation Airport.


More details about Market Readiness Training can be found in this info deck, the agenda is available here.

"Though there are many accelerators like YCombinator, Techstars and Seedstars but none of them could compete with WorldStartup in terms of hands on training. Other accelerators only focus on making equity investments but WorldStartup invests in the social impact of their startups by making them market ready. I will highly recommend Market Readiness Training to all startup founders as it will be once in life experience for them and I can bet for it." - Adeel Javaid from Townchat, a startup from Estonia developing a digital passport for travelers and robot immigration buddies for Airports
