1st going global accelerator - Flight 7

Society3 Scaleup Accelerator Going Global Accelerator
In the past 25 years, not a single tech or tech related business made it to the top by staying local. Going global is not an afterthought when a company is big enough. Building a global business must by in the DNA from the beginning. The Society3 founders took four businesses from zero to exit - from local to global. Today, being in over 20 countries, Society3 has all what it takes to help young and innovative companies to go global faster and earlier than ever before imaginable.


With an external funding rate of over 50%, Society3 is one of the most successful accelerators in the world.
Society3 is completely independent, no corporate influence, no knowhow transfer to outside.
