FOREIGN STARTUPS brings together founders and executives of technology start-ups seeking traction and growth in the Unites States. The event hosts global entrepreneurs and professionals from tech startups at various stages of growth, with a common purpose of transition and growth in the U.S. and globally. We are passionate about our ventures and bring you success stories that are redefining our world and future.
Our Speaker Segment features entrepreneurs and investors from Silicon Valley's startup ecosystem, often foreign entrepreneurs who started abroad and funded and grew their ventures in the U.S.
Our 2017 premier event features the dynamic duo of Jonathan Baer and Michelle Messina, co-authors of the bestselling book Decoding Silicon Valley: The Insider's Guide. It is a must-have reference for today's global entrepreneur and shows how to build a technology company into a global leader providing valuable insights and success stories from deep within Silicon Valley.
Jon Baer is a VC at Threshold Ventures and loves working with early stage startups. He was the founder and CEO of two venture-backed companies and spends his time teaching, mentoring, and advising startups with leading accelerators and investors around the world. He believes that startups require tough love; and need to focus on money, metrics, and milestones.
Michelle Messina is a serial entrepreneur with strong sales, marketing, and business development skills. She pioneered the Silicon Valley best practices training of startups in 2004 and has worked in more than 35 countries and leading acceleration programs around the world. Today, she helps companies get clear and focused to translate their vision into reality.
We'll have signed copies of the books available for purchase after our event.
