Startup Europe Comes to Silicon Valley (SEC2SV) presents an opportunity for Austrian scaleups to gain exposure for their business and products/services in front of an international audience, and provides the platform for building valuable connections in Silicon Valley.
SEC2SV is a project of the Startup Europe Partnership H2020. It connects EU policy makers, scaleups, and corporations with Silicon Valley stakeholders.
The 5-day SEC2SV conference will take place September 21-25, 2015 in San Francisco and Silicon Valley. It will kick-off with a European Innovation Day conference, followed by days of meetings designed to stimulate networking and business opportunities, as well as improve the understanding in Silicon Valley of the increasingly dynamic European startup ecosystem.
Recruitment is underway, and SEC2SV is looking for 15 EU scaleups to be part of the conference.
Requirements for interested Austrian and EU scaleups are as follows:
- Be a European Union company;
- Have an average annualized growth in employees or turnover greater than 20% per annum over a three year period, with more than 10 employees at the beginning of the observation period (based on SV2UK definition of a scaleup);
- Have an interest in expanding in the United States market or already have a local subsidiary.
Applications can be submitted online here.
