A Dutch startup which spun-out of Startup Bootcamp Amsterdam that is getting high-speed-traction with USA-based customers and needed a foot-on-the-ground in San Francisco. We helped them to connect with relevant networks for attaining office space, new colleagues and most of all thought leaders who would push their revolutionary proposition forward.
We coached this fast-growing Dutch middleware authentication startup in pitching for VC’s and new talent. We connected them with Seed+ investors to scale fast.
