Nine exciting companies from the Nordics are ready to fly over in a few weeks and join TINC Spring 2019!

TINC an Accelerator Program at Nordic Innovation House–Silicon Valley and is run by Innovation Norway. Get the first glimpse of the participants who are about to enter the journey of a lifetime.

During the four weeks of the program, the teams become more like a family and the companies go through intense development. They will be challenged, they will be confused, they will be inspired, and they will get to test their product and business model in the most competitive tech ecosystem in the world. The program will give them a reality check and teach them that coming to Silicon Valley is almost like entering the Olympics for tech startups.

 “This is our 16th TINC program here in Silicon Valley. It is always a privilege to welcome another group of Nordic companies to the program, to take part in their journey and to practically see them grow in front of our eyes.” 

Åse Pettersen Bailey, Program Director TINC.
