SkyAmbassador Network

Our SkyAmbassador network consists of invited individuals who promote SkyDeck at events, to individual startups, and to potential strategic, corporate, or global partners on behalf of SkyDeck. In addition, they help develop SkyDeck’s global network, elevate the visibility of the program, and provide a local contact for startups and others who want to learn more about SkyDeck. Our current SkyAmbassadors represent Southeast Asia, Central Europe, and Western Europe.
