Opening doors to investors
The Eye Tribe needed capital to really move forward with their new technology, as it was a spinout from the IT university of Copenhagen. Innovation Centre Denmark (ICDK) Silicon Valley took them through the program SCALEit, went through their business model, and practiced their pitch in order to make it sharp and to the point and to make them ready to present it for the big investors.
Important key partners
- Through SCALEit we met very important contacts that are now key partners, costumers, and investors. They helped us with general knowledge about how to operate in a start-up city like the Valley, what was expected from us, and whom we could talk to about our challenges, says Sune Alstrup Johansen, CEO, The Eye Tribe.
Building up the company
With the help from ICDK Silicon Valley, The Eye Tribe got seed capital and is now ready to develop their business model with new licence partners.
