European founders and entrepreneurs, here’s your chance to make an invaluable trip to the heart of the digital scene in the US. This year, VentureVillage’s Valley Camp will run from 6-12 October and will bring together European founders and entrepreneurs for an unforgettable trip to San Francisco and Silicon Valley.
What is Valley Camp?
The concept is simple – Valley Camp gathers together the most ambitious European founders and entrepreneurs and takes them on a supercharged Stateside business trip. Not only will you benefit from the existing Valley Camp network, you’ll be able to realise your business synergies with European counterparts. And have some fun too.
During the week-long trip European visitors will get to know some of the most important companies, startups and investors in Silicon Valley and San Francisco through office tours, and gain knowledge in different business areas during workshops and expert sessions. Past participants from both sides of the Atlantic have included Point Nine Capital, LinkedIn, Delivery Hero and Couchsurfing.
Can I organise my own event?
Absolutely. Valley Camp is a crowdsourced event – while we set the date and invite participants, you will be in full charge of organising your trip (housing/hotel, flight etc). We will offer some great satellite and fringe events, but everyone is invited to contribute to the program and bring their own ideas.
Social events will give the participants the opportunity to broaden their network across the ocean, while there’ll also be the opportunity to organise your own leisure events in one of the most exciting cities in the world. Coordination and information is done via our Facebook group. Past events have included Sunset Sailing, a visit to Alcatraz, plus various meetups and BBQs.
How do I participate?
Book your flight, reserve a hotel and be part of the action. For more information, request to join us at Facebook. Here we can give you even more details fo the trip, and keep you up to date with any additions. See you in the Valley…
