About uGlobally Immersion Experiences

  • This program was created in partnership with a local accelerator/innovation space and designed to help startups and tech companies;
  • The primary and main goal is to connect your business with the local ecosystem and assist your internationalization process through an immersive, hands-on experience;
  • This is NOT an accelerator program, there’s NO equity taken, and the organizer will not provide any investments;
  • Immersion Experiences are exclusive to entrepreneurs that have acquired an uGlobally pass.

What is an immersion experience?

An immersion experience is a customized business trip created by our team in partnership with local accelerators, coworking spaces, incubators and other startup-focused organizations.

The primary goal of this kind of experience is to provide tech entrepreneurs with extremely affordable and efficient options to explore new markets, connect with new cultures and expand their business.

Is my startup too early (or late) stage to go for an international immersion experience?

Not at all. International experiences are an excellent way to bring innovative solutions to your (still) local business or idea, find strategic partners and increase your customer’s base.

What Am I expected to get at the end of my immersion experience?

Our immersion experiences encourage you to gain hands-on knowledge of internationalization instead of paying someone to do it for you.

You are the one who is getting to know the new market and connecting with potential customers, partners and relevant people in your industry, not a third-party. In other words – you are the one who will make things happen!

Thus, at the end of your experience, you will not depend on anyone else to take your business abroad, you will have the know-how to start your international operations.

Is there a maximum of experiences I can go for?

You have access to as many immersion experiences as you want with any uGlobally pass. However, you must apply to the programs in advance to be sure that the host will be able to receive you.

If you acquire the soft-landing pass, you will also have access to one soft-landing program during the 3 months.

Are you going to ask for any participation in the deals that I close during my stay?

No. The only money that we will receive is the pass fee.
