In between, participants will each be hosted for up to 10 days by a certified Soft Landing site in the US which will provide programming / services especially themed to the various industry sectors and matched to the needs of each applicant.

In preparation for the Boot Camps, a pre-departure workshop will be provided to ensure the participants make the most of their two weeks in the US.
