Nine startups will soon be headed to California thanks to the German Silicon Valley Accelerator (GSVA).
The startups will spend 3 months in Silicon Valley where they’ll be paired with industry mentors to seek out new fundraising opportunities, partners and customers. A few select startups will be asked to stay an additional 3 months.
