The German Year in the USA will kick-off in October 2018, promoting a series of events, workshops and projects between the two countries until the end of 2019. We are packing our suitcases and coming along to bring Americans and Germans together to exchange.
Our warm up event for the US season takes place in June 2018: Our first Media Match NYC Edition. Ten European media startups from Germany, Austria, Belgium, the UK and Estonia have been selected by the next media accelerator to join their first official trip to NYC in June 2018 to present their innovations to executives and investors in the world media capital New York City. The main scope of the visit is to build a bridge between the USA and Europe for startups with technology- based media products and to support the creation of a stronger collaborative community in the field of media innovation between both continents.
During the transatlantic visit, the teams will have the chance to participate at two events that will give them an insight into two main areas: how to work together with media companies in US and how to get funded by top investors.
