SETsquared is committed to supporting startups accelerate their growth and often the US can be a strategic market for tech businesses. The kTeams programme is brilliant.

Design Terminal, Hungary


Dorottya Gál, Program Director

kTeams was the most efficient US program where we have taken our teams. The expertise, range of experience and market knowledge of the organizers was extraordinary, not to mention their invaluable network connections, not only in Boston, but also globally. Besides the very strong training content, they gave the teams a lot of individual attention. And if this wasn’t already outstanding, the location (the CIC, Cambridge Innovation Center) was the best choice for venue, where our teams had the opportunity to meet local entrepreneurs & participate in events.

kTeams Fall 2017

Our 2 weeks in Boston with KTeams really gave us a boost in taking our business to the United States. They gave us many opportunities to get in touch with a diversity of contacts. We received great feedback on our strategies and came home with the feeling we needed to finish our business case as soon as possible. They helped and convinced us to start in the US and showed us many important subjects to think about. KTeams is a very professional and helpful organization to work with

Paul van den Biggelaar, CEO
kTeams Fall 2017

We are still very excited about the program in Boston: it taught us to think “bigger”, to set audacious goals and present ourselves in a much more succinct and attractive way. We will take action to incorporate this in our strategy and presentation.

Menno van Rossum, US Director
kTeams Fall 2017

My time with kTeams in Boston was great to obtain a lot of exposure to the professional Healthcare and VC environment of Boston. The team gave me valuable feedback on our proposition and helped me to get a fresh perspective on strategic next steps required for our company. I went home better informed and ready to start executing those next steps, both in Europe as well as in the US. I am looking forward to seeing them again soon in Boston, as part of those plans.

Fresh Relevance, United Kingdom

Mike Austin, CEO
kTeams 2016
We have been running for over 3 years and over that time, our product has become much more sophisticated. However, the messaging and presentation has become more complex too. The mentors helped me to strip our marketing message back to the essentials, focusing on value and differentiators. We how have messaging which is much clearer, shorter and better, not just for the USA market, but better for use worldwide.

Participating in the eTeams program had a significant impact on the success of ONTOFORCE today. Not only did we get access to an impressive network and learned a lot about how to do business in the US, it also helped us assess the status of our company in multiple dimensions, ranging from marketing, finance, pricing, technology readiness to Human Resources. We, as senior management learned a lot about how to successfully bring our company to the next level. We set the pricing and business plans for the next stage of our company during the sessions in Boston.
