The 2010 ANZA Gateway to the US program kicked off with a series of free webinars in July. Each of our three 60-minute webinars addressed specific concerns Australian entrepreneurs have about commercialization options in the US market, based on a recent survey of ANZA TechNet members. More than 600 Australian entrepreneurs and CEOs took part – which speaks volumes to the number of innovators out there getting ready to bring Australian technology to the world.
The webinars addressed the “myths and realities” surrounding establishing a presence in the US market, the “facts and fears” of doing business in the US and the funding options and opportunities available to Aussie businesses looking to expand overseas. The webinars are available to view on-demand at this link (brief registration required).
ANZA TechNet again extends our thanks to our network members who donated their time and expertise to share valuable information and insight on these webinars – David Evans, CEO Starplayit; Susan Hailey, Partner, CTPartners; Dr. Larry Marshall, Managing Director, Southern Cross Venture Partners; Sidney Minassian, Co-Founder and Chief Liaison, Liaise, Inc.; Doron Ben-Meir, CEO, Commercialisation Australia; Max Shapiro, angel investor, Keiretsu Forum; and Jennifer Zanich, General Manager, Xumii Services. It is the contribution of our network members throughout the year and across the platforms of our programs that is the underlying value and core strength of the ANZA Technology Network. It is why we are the leading independent organization connecting the Australian and American innovative tech sectors.
