Eleven startups, building in various industries, virtually participated in workshops and pitch sessions throughout the week. The founders worked on their investor and customer pitches and reviewed their approach to the US market through group sessions and 1-1 meetings with the ERA Global team. Founders shared with the ERA Global team that they are now able to better understand the NYC and US startup ecosystem, instigating keen evaluation in their product and market entry strategy.
Throughout the week, the founders had multiple opportunities to pitch and receive feedback. The participants, especially later-stage startup founders, found themselves resetting their mindset, as if they were ‘back at square one,’ as they improved the clarity of their pitch, and thereby re-evaluated their product and business model for the US market.
The main phase of the X-HUB program will resume in September, and a number of the participants will join ERA Global in NYC later on in the fall. With this strong beginning, ERA Global anticipates impressive growth and results for these startups. Read more about the eleven teams below.
