The GSP is for startups aligned with global grand challenges (GGCs) that want to 10X their current startup and scale it globally. We’re looking for startups that have experience with exponential technology, some level of demonstrated market traction, and an eagerness to radically level-up their business. Cohorts are global, inclusive and diverse—past programs have represented over five continents in one group!
Specifically, these are the attributes of an ideal startup for GSP:
SU mission alignment: You have a startup in one of the global grand challenge spaces.
Team: Your startup has at least two full-time co-founders.
Experience: You have expertise in an exponential technology and/or a key GGC space.
Time: Your venture is a fully formed entity.
Traction: You have demonstrated market traction (LOIs, purchase orders, validated trials, sales, etc.).
Eagerness to learn: You’re looking for a substantial shift in mindset and skill set and are eager to globalize your startup and 10x your impact.
Availability: You’re available to travel to a global location like Copenhagen for the Activate phase (four weeks), and the SU campus in Silicon Valley for the Accelerate phase (four weeks).
