Soft Landing Program LS&H - NL>USA

Soft Landing Program LS&H - NL>USA

The Soft Landing Program consists of three phases: (1) selection and preparation, (2) soft landing, (3) evaluation and learning.

  1. Selection and preparation
    In the first phase, interested companies will be assessed on their motivations and readiness to participate in the Soft Landing Program. Final selection of companies is made in conjunction with all program partners: InnovationQuarter, CITRIS, and Medical Delta. A list of eligibility criteria can be found on the welcoming page of this website.

    Interested companies will also help tailor specific aspects of the program to their needs, including identifying potential partners and other relevant contacts.
  2. Soft landing
    During the soft landing period from October 1st  2016 to March 1st 2017, selected companies can visit the Silicon Valley / CITRIS ecosystem as often as they need. Office space will be arranged, and there will be opportunities to develop contacts and participate in events.

    As each company has its own needs, parts of the program will be tailored towards validating the US market fit for their specific products.
    Participating companies also have a responsibility to efficiently and effectively make use of the time that is provided to them. 

    Don't waste this unique opportunity!
  3. Evaluation and learning
    All participating Dutch companies will be asked to attend an evaluation/feedback event to be held in the Netherlands after the Soft Landing period. Lessons learned can be shared with other companies that might want to participate in the next cycle of the program.
