Creonic Selected for German Silicon Valley Accelerator

Kaiserslautern, Germany, Jan. 20 2014 –  The German Silicon Valley Accelerator (GSVA) selected 12 start-up companies from all over Germany to take part in the acceleration program in Silicon Valley. Supported by the German Ministry of Economics and Technology, the young companies receive the chance to succeed in Silicon Valley and thereby extend their global operations.

GSVA’s network is perfectly positioned in the intersection between Silicon Valley innovators, Venture Capitalists, the best German start-ups and a top-class committee of experts. This was especially evident during the “Celebrating Innovation” winners’ party at which big international names of the venture capital scene were present.
