Aug 24, 2016
Stream Technologies is amongst 17 scaleups chosen to represent Europe at the Startup Europe Comes to Silicon Valley (SEC2SV) program in September.
With total funding of over $60M and 1000 employees, these 17 European promising tech companies cover verticals such as e-commerce, healthcare, security and storage.
EIT Digital and Mind the Bridge today announced 17 finalists for the second edition of Startup Europe Comes to Silicon Valley (SEC2SV) - the premier program for future European startup unicorns to engage with main US industry players for sales, funding and collaboration opportunities in order to rapidly scale up on the other side of the Atlantic. Seventeen CEOs from top leading European tech startups have been invited to San Francisco for a week of local presentations and meetings kicking off on September 12 with the European Innovation Day at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View.
The latest and most innovative tech companies from Belgium, France, Germany, Iceland, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Spain, Romania, Slovenia, and the UK, will be in the Silicon Valley to engage with the US market in their respective industries. With total funding of over $60M and 1000 employees these 15 European promising tech companies cover verticals such as E-commerce, Healthcare, Security and Storage.
"These companies really epitomize European Innovation - the next TomTom, Spotify, or BlaBlaCar - and we are convinced that their participation in SEC2SV will strengthen the two-way bridge between the European and the Bay Area ecosystems creating value and jobs for both continents," stated Marko Turpeinen, Director of EIT Digital's San Francisco Hub.
"We've already seen impressive results from the startups that participated in SEC2SV 2015. For example, JobandTalent (Spain) raised $42M in Series B after the event and Mosaicoon (Italy) raised $8 million," explained Marco Marinucci, CEO Mind the Bridge. "I expect equally impressive results from this year's cohort," he added.
Silicon Valley-based partner organizations, each focused on a different EU country or region proposed candidates for the program. The final selection was made by a group of investors composed of Startup Europe Partnership (SEP) Investors Forum members and U.S. investors. Additional scaleups were proposed by EIT Digital Accelerator.
