Get to know the 14 companies who will be joining the first-ever edition of the US Expansion Expedition, organized by ScaleNL and Techleap.

ScaleNL and Techleap, two leading Dutch organizations focused on tech growth, announce the 14 companies from the Techleap for Scaleups community who will be joining the inaugural US Expansion Expedition. This intensive 5-day program, taking place in Salt Lake City and San Francisco, is designed to elevate the growth of Dutch scale-ups already present in the US market.

The US Expansion Expedition provides these companies with a unique opportunity to gain essential insights into US market dynamics. Through a mix of knowledge sessions, workshops, and targeted networking, founders will develop practical strategies for navigating the US business landscape and forge invaluable connections with successful founders, US-based VCs, and potential partners.

Adding a prestigious touch to the program, His Royal Highness Prince Constantijn van Oranje, Special Envoy of Techleap, will be joining the expedition, underscoring the importance of fostering collaboration and growth for Dutch tech companies in the US market.

Participating founders will benefit from the expertise of other successful founders like Sid Sijbrandij (GitLab), Eric Rea (Podium), Stephen Jacobs (Cotopaxi), as well as investors from Album VC, Pelion Venture Partners, and Diaspora VC, among others. The program also includes dedicated time for founders to schedule their own meetings within the vibrant tech ecosystems of Salt Lake City and San Francisco.
