There are two stages of the Armenian Virtual Bridge program, including educational and acceleration. This is what the program’s coordinator Mariam Hambarchyan said during an online meeting today. According to her, the first stage will last eight weeks and features an online training course.
During those eight weeks, experts will give speeches and present various aspects of the global IT sector, including the establishment and formation of American companies, the formation of a brand and image, as well as business growth and promotion of products in global markets. The participants will also be assigned tasks and will work with mentors who will help them complete the assignments and present them to other companies and experts.
The companies that successfully complete the training course will have the opportunity to visit Silicon Valley for two weeks and met with the venture funds and companies with which they would like to collaborate. To participate in the program, companies need to fill out and send applications until August 23.
The company must be registered in Armenia, and one of the founders must be a citizen of Armenia. If the companies meet the minimum criteria, the selection committee will select the participants with the final product or at least the design of the final product.
