OCE is proud to announce their GlobalStart Voucher Pilot Program. The program provides up to $15,000 in support of young entrepreneurs for placement with a host incubator/accelerator in a selected global market. OCE’s support must be matched 1:1 by the startup. The length of placement is flexible based on the young entrepreneur’s needs, but anticipated to last between 3 to 6 months. Applicants can find their own global incubator/accelerator host, or request an introduction to potential hosts with whom OCE has developed relationships in key markets.
OCE will be supporting 15 GlobalStart Vouchers in the pilot phase of the program. Given the limited number of vouchers available at this phase, OCE is asking CLAs, OCEAs and RICs to nominate young entrepreneurs among their top youth-led startups who qualify for and would benefit from this program. Nominations are due by November 15, 2015.
Please find attached the GlobalStart Pilot Program guidelines and nomination forms. OCE will be hosting an information session for CLAs, OCEAs and RICs on Tuesday, October 27th from 1-2pm.
