A Deep Dive Week is
a combination of sector-specific “softlanding”, acceleration and internationalization. It provides support and guidance from local ecosystem leaders and gives know-how & access to ecosystem resources. A Scaling Manager identifies each startup needs and ambitions before the DDW, facilitating contacts during and after the week. Deep Dive Weeks are most beneficial for startups that are ready to scale. Startup Lighthouse will organise 8 Deep Dive Weeks in 2018 and 2019.
