Registration is now open for the ANZA TechNet 2009 Gateway to the US program. Any innovative Australian or New Zealand early-stage company or start-up seeking to develop a US market entry plan or strategy should check out all this program has to offer. For US$3,995 (which covers the cost of two company executives) it is tremendous value for an international program.
The Gateway program starts with a series of Gateway Focus Workshops being offered in Adelaide, Melbourne and Sydney, August 24-28. These full-day workshops are led by ANZA CEO Viki Forrest, who has worked with hundreds of companies entering or exploring the US market and Chris Shipley, the world-renowned tech analyst and leader of the Guidewire Group. Chris has seen thousands of companies over the past 15 years, in both her role with Guidewire and as the executive producer of the DEMO conference.
Viki and Chris will be joined by VCs from Starfish Ventures at the workshops for a full-day working with you to develop your company pitch for the US market and to gain a better understanding of current market trends, US business culture and the environment of Silicon Valley. Spaces are limited, so register for the workshop today.
Those who complete the Gateway Focus Workshop are then invited to attend the Gateway to the US, which includes 4 weeks of online mentoring with a dedicated coach with valuable US market experience in your industry niche, plus attendance at the 3-day Summit in Silicon Valley, October 5-7. If you are committed to completing the workshop, and know the US market is the place for you and your company, you can register for the entire Gateway to the US package by clicking here.
