When it comes to the startup universe, the US market still shines brighter than a supernova. Entrepreneurs from around the world flock to the San Francisco Bay Area to get a piece of the Silicon Valley pie in their quest for scale, global reach, capital, and talent. But just as many actors end up toiling away in other industries in Hollywood, many entrepreneurs end up in the crowded startup graveyard. Superior preparation and a well thought-out strategy can help you avoid this fate.

Is the US market right for your startup? How can you effectively plan for your US market entry? When is the right time? How can you prepare? What can you realistically expect? And how can you save resources?

In this session, we will take a virtual dive into the Silicon Valley startup ecosystem to help you answer these questions. We will explore some of the less obvious characteristics of the US market to help you get a jump on the learning curve, and we will point you toward the resources that can accelerate and facilitate your US (ad-)venture.
