During this unique program, startups receive mentoring, promotion and critical introductions while competing for an exclusive spot at Guidewire STUDIO, an in-residence business accelerator in the heart of Silicon Valley valued at over $30,000.
Innovate!Europe and its partners are hosting a Going Global workshops and networking meetup in Tel Aviv on April 1st. During this workshop, Guidewire Group’s expert analyst team will give you feedback on your company’s competitive value proposition and market opportunity, and help you hone the pitching skills you need to effectively compete for partners and funding.
Best of all, there is no cost to apply or to participate in the Going Global workshops.
Start-ups in the workshops held so far have raved about the experience.
Conor O’Neill of Ireland’s LouderVoice, called it “pure gold” and said it was “the most impressive start-up workshop I have ever encountered.”

Note: You don’t need to be a workshop participant to join us at one of the networking meetups. The meetups are also open to investors, journalists and other members of the entrepreneurial community. However, an RSVP is required as space is limited.
If you want to participate in the competition but can¹t attend one of the workshops, apply anyway. If you’re selected, Guidewire Group’s analysts will conduct a telephone interview with you. And if you’re not a startup, but know any that you think should compete, forward this note to them.
