ICT Mission, Silicon Valley/San Francisco, October 27-31, 2014
October 27 to October 31, 2014 will mark the timeframe of the second Belgian ICT Mission to take place in the San Francisco Bay Area/Silicon Valley. Participating Brussels-based companies can expect a diverse and extensive program. Highlights will include corporate visits of Silicon Valley icons such as Google and Facebook as well as up and coming Tech startups like Twindom. Companies will also have the opportunity to visit some of the very successful Bay Area incubators. To add to the corporate meetings, customized B-2-B meetings will be organized based on the participating companies' requests and profiles. In order to provide further inspiration and insight into the Bay Area startup spirit, a "Belgian Entrepreneurs Night" networking event will take place allowing participants to get in touch with successful Belgian entrepreneurs in the Bay area (e.g. Radionomy, Odoo, AdsWizz, Checkster, Voxbone). A Tech Pitch Night will further allow companies to position themselves and attract potential investors/partners, an event that will be preceded by individual coaching sessions in order to guarantee its success. In addition, companies have the opportunity to take part in the "TechMatch Europe-Silicon Valley" program which will match Europe's top tech startups with the direct needs of Silicon Valley corporations and corporate investors. Finally, a number of local experts will offer workshops and seminars on topics such as visa regulations, crowd funding, and questions like how to operate in the US or how to approach potential customers.
