Prepare for Boston Program:  kTeams organizers coach participants prior to traveling to Boston, helping them with the first iterations of their pitch for US investors and customers.

kTeams helps improve: kTeams organizers and specific domain experts advise on improving the pitch, as well as helping to optimize product positioning and value propositions.

Ecosystem experts validate: Participating teams present their pitches to invited ecosystem experts in an informal lunch setting and get valuable feedback.

Present to ecosystem: Participants present their companies in a Demo Event with invited investors, executives, and other key members of the Boston Ecosystem. This event is typically scheduled for the end of the first week.

Use optimized strategy and pitch in one-on-one meetings: kTeams organizers, using their personal networks, help arrange meetings with potential investors, partners and customers. Participants use their optimized strategies and pitches to make these meetings productive. By working with the companies prior to their arrival, organizers are often able to set up meetings for the first week in Boston.

Round table discussions, ecosystem events, master classes: kTeams organizes lively round-table discussions with investors, corporate scouts and successful startup entrepreneurs, complemented by some lectures about topics of interest to scale-ups.  kTeams integrates relevant ecosystem events into the program (for example the finals of the MIT 100K program were made part of the last program).

Post-program follow up: Realizing that the participants need to process the amount of information and impressions experienced during their stay in Boston, a conference call is scheduled about a month after the participants return home. In this call kTeams organizers address new questions and developments in the business of the participants.
