PROGRAM

Silta provides the participants with the necessary knowledge on what to take into account while building their company in the SF Bay Area. Additionally, the program aims to provide the participants with custom activities that might help the participants with reaching their program objective - depending on the participation agenda this could mean anything from making necessary introductions to investors to organizing events for networking or a gathering of experts from a particular domain.

The next batch (F22) takes place during the Fall 2022 (August 29th to November 27th)!

PROGRAM

The program has a light weekly structure consisting of 1) the weekly sync and 2) the Sunday dinner.

The weekly sync is devoted for the participants to share the status of last week's goals, setting goals for themselves for the upcoming week, and sharing any learnings made & challenges faced during the last week. The weekly sync is there to enable information sharing as well as peer support among the batch.

The Sunday dinner is a weekly shared meal held on Sunday evenings each week. The dinner is prepared by a randomly selected pair from the batch for the rest of the batch. The purpose of the dinner is to reserve time and space for the cohort to share how their week has been as well as discuss any learnings and experiences made during the week.

The monthly structure for the program is the following:

M1

The first month consists orientational sessions as well as the first reflections regarding the program. M1 is the time to get really going with your objectives for the program.

M2

The second month consists mostly of the batch participants working on their objectives. The halfway there reflection session is also held during M2.

M3

The 'final countdown' for the program. During M3 the participants should reach the objectives they set for themselves for Silta. The phase will be ended by Silta Demo Day, the final event, and the ending ceremony for the program.
