About the Program
SILTA is a program that takes early-stage founders from Finland to the San Francisco Bay Area for three months to build their companies and enables them to immerse themselves into the vibrant and lively culture of the SF Bay area startup ecosystem.
The program provides the participants with customized activities that might help the participants with reaching their objective for the program - depending on the objectives of the participant this could mean anything from making necessary introductions or organizing events for networking with experts from a particular domain.
SILTA has developed a Deep Tech track in collaboration with Mimir Fellows to support early stage science backgrounded startups from Finland. The track will be run the first time during S24 batch, and it will include specialised sessions and events with relevant deep tech ecosystem players in the Bay Area.
