Building global startups
Zgarage is an accelerator program affiliated with and funded by Nestadio Capital to help the most promising startups from Europe (starting first with France) be connected with the Silicon Valley and the US market while keeping R&D in their local market.
Given that French VC invested last year about €13 or $16 per company and per inhabitant (compared to $93 in the United Sates), one of the goals of Zgarage is to bridge this gap by helping European-based startups be directly connected to US-based VCs. Zgarage can be thought of as the middleware between the various startup ecosystems in Europe and USA.
To build a meaningful presence in the US, Zgarage programs suggest a minimum of 6 months for consumer service and 9 months for enterprise startups to make significant progress.
