STARTUP
Program

At MonacoTech, we help growth-seeking startups build internationally successful businesses in Monaco.

We foster the startup mindset!

We roll as a big team: we root for our startups and rejoice in their every achievement! Conversely, we set them in motion by ensuring that they have access to the best resources, experts’ advice, and to Monaco’s international business ecosystem.

Succeeding in the entrepreneurial adventure requires a state of mind that we value, encourage and expect from the founders and teams who join us: accountability, implementation, collaboration, customer-centricity, data-driven decisions and results-oriented thinking.

PROGRAM FEATURES

1-on-1 Coaching Sessions

Startups can book a session with our coaches to work in detail on specific aspects of their business. During these meetings, our coaches provide actionable advice and demonstrate how to apply it, such that entrepreneurs become autonomous.

Birds of a Feather Workshops

When a topic becomes relevant to several startups, we gauge interest and hold ad-hoc workshops, led by our coaches and/or external experts.

Entrepreneurs’ Resources

Our startups have access to a dedicated knowledge-based platform where they can find new tools and resources created during coaching sessions and workshops. Materials include templates, guides and playbooks adapted to the different startups’ development stages, from early-stage to scale-up.

Networking Events

We organize both private and public sessions with investors, entrepreneurs, renowned experts, organisations, industrial players, and potential clients and partners.

Entrepreneurship Classes

MonacoTech startups can attend entrepreneurship classes at the IUM (International University of Monaco).

Community, feedback and Review Sessions

– We love having founders onsite to enable effective communication, thought-provoking exchanges, collaboration and cross-team synergies. That’s why we also work on nurturing the community life.
– Every six (6) months, an external panel – consisting primarily of investors – reviews the progress of our startups and provides recommendations.

Valuable Perks

– Each startup gets a Monaco Telecom package (phone line, web & email address, an .mc domain name).
– They also have opportunities to join government delegations on international business development trips.
