Though all eyes focus on established tech havens like San Francisco and New York, Boston has been fostering and nurturing a tech ecosystem well worth its long winters

The pace of venture capital investment is rising strongly in the city, with life sciences and intelligent systems as the main drivers. In combination with a visit to Canada’s main tech city Toronto, we’ll provide you with a GoGlobal mission that more than worthy of your attention.

The special focus of the mission will be on startups active in AI and in digital health.

What's in it for me? 

  • Get to know all the ins and outs of taking your business to Boston or Toronto. 
  • Meet with & learn from Belgian scale-ups in digital health and AI, such as Ontoforce, Sentiance and many more. 
  • Pitch your startup to local Boston & Toronto based investors. 
  • Speeddate with relevant prospects & potential partners in digital health and AI. 
  • Connect with relevant stakeholders in the local digital healh & AI ecosystems. 
  • Learn from some of the most prominent local startups & scale-ups in digital health and AI, such as Memora Health. 
  • Meet with relevant people from Brigham and Womens Hospital en Harvard Medical School in Boston. 
  • Visit of Microsoft (AI & Advanced Analytics division). 
  • Visit of MIT & IBM's Watson Lab together with Sophie Vandebroek. 
  • ...

We're preparing a fully fledged high profile program that caters to your needs as we speak, keep your eyes open in the coming weeks!
