The fourth ubi i/o accelerator program in the United States created by Business France and Bpifrance is now to be called “Impact USA”, and there will be more than just a name change this year, with support being provided to a total of 17 handpicked startups.
After three very successful years, particular emphasis will be applied to coaching these French startups before their immersion in the American market. They will now follow a full 20-week coaching program, the first half in France and the second half in the United States. Impact USA’s aims couldn’t be any clearer: to provide all the startups with the tools they need to build upon successful business meetings from their very first day in New York or San Francisco, and to commence US operations fully right from the last day of the program.
Impact USA will be running from April 17 to June 23 in both Silicon Valley and Silicon Alley. Ten startups will be hosted on the San Francisco campus, and the seven others in New York. To find out more about them, click here.
