Apply to the Valosan Startup Program

We are seeking companies that have a world-class product but have not yet received the media visibility they would rightfully deserve.

What is the Valosan Startup Program?

Valosan Startup Program is a new free-of-charge PR accelerator program brought to you by Startup100, together with San Francisco Agency and Valosan (a new SaaS company we are launching).

The Valosan Startup Program aims to support very early-stage NewNordic startups in building their relationships with the media, both locally and internationally.

We invite companies to apply to the PR accelerator program, which gives PR support for 6 months, and a Valosan software license free of charge for 12 months.

  • Participating companies will be chosen with strict criteria, including company stage, resources, and “media-worthiness.”
  • Valosan benefits from the program by getting new users and feedback for product development.
  • San Francisco Agency benefits from the program by marketing our expertise to companies in order to improve the chance they would become clients later.
  • Journalists and the media benefit by getting info about new innovations very early on.

Submit applications by February 20th, 2022!
