Join us on Tuesday, July 7th at 10:30 AM PST/1:30 PM EST for Silicon Valley: is it the right fit for my startup?
Silicon Valley is seen as the most influential technology ecosystem on the planet. Startup founders from all over the world flock there to validate a problem they are trying to solve with the hopes of securing capital to launch + scale. There is so much to learn from the people and ecosystem in Silicon Valley, but it’s also not for everyone.
Join us in conversation with Joanne Fedeyko, Founder & CEO @ Connection Silicon Valley, where she’ll address the following questions:
- Is Silicon Valley right for my business?
- When is the right time to build a network in Silicon Valley?
- What are common and critical mistakes Canadian companies make when pitching to Silicon Valley investors?
- What are Silicon Valley investors looking for – what impresses them – how do you market to them?
- What conferences, programs, events or other opportunities exist when Canadian startups are looking to make a trip to the Valley?
