Startup Texas Bootcamp Industry Agnostic (Fall 2024)

Be part of our first Startup Bootcamp in Texas!

Swissnex Startup Bootcamp

Take a deep dive into the entrepreneurship ecosystem in Texas with the Swissnex Startup Bootcamp, and get empowered to build business relationships on the US West Coast.

With over a decade of experience accelerating the international success of companies such as Mindmaze, faceshift, and Ava, Swissnex is equipped to support Swiss startups at various stages of their journey. We offer 2-week Startup Bootcamps with toolbox sessions, fireside chats, networking events, a demo night and more. This unique opportunity gives startups strategic advice to internationalize, visibility and a home base to succeed in the US. For the first time, we are offering a Startup Bootcamp in Texas in the Fall of 2024. This edition of the Startup Bootcamp is open to Swiss startups from all industries.

Texas stands out as a hub for innovation due to its highly educated workforce, favorable business climate with low costs and tax incentives, and a strategic central location that enhances logistics and access to markets. These factors, combined with significant venture capital investment and a supportive entrepreneurial ecosystem, make Texas an ideal environment for startups and business growth.

Our focus will be on three main areas. First is expanding your network in Texas and the US West Coast. Here, the Swissnex mentors and team will be crucial in securing relevant meetings for you.

The second area involves group sessions with local industry expert leaders. We organize these sessions, tailored to your cohort and milestones, in collaboration with the speakers.

The third focus is on public events. In addition to many events happening in the city, we will organize a Pitch Night. Preparing you to pitch to an expert and demanding American audience is a key part of the program.

This Bootcamp will take place from November 4 to 15, 2024. The first week (Nov. 4–10) will take place in Austin, TX, the second week (Nov. 11–15) will take place in Houston, TX.  Startups are more than welcome to extend their stay in San Francisco, working from our co-working space for up to a month afterward.

Important: Applying startups need to be in the Innosuisse Coaching Program.

Deadline to apply is June 30, 2024.
