Introducing GSP 2019 Denmark

The Activate phase of the newly redesigned Global Startup Program’s first cohort is happening now in Copenhagen, Denmark. After their month in Copenhagen, participants will take a month-long break before reconvening in June for four intensive weeks of GSP Accelerate in Silicon Valley.

These entrepreneurs were selected from hundreds of applicants for their potential and promise to positively impact the world through their startups. We’re proud to call them GSPers. Join us in celebrating their endeavors, and stay tuned for more updates from the program as it happens.
