Global innovation is at its peak! Are you ready to get in on the action?
Did you know over 300 tech accelerators exist outside of the U.S? Countries from Israel to Australia are pouring money into technology and entrepreneurship, and international startups have begun to capture the attention of large US companies.
Join us on Jan. 23rd at 5:30pm for Global Innovator II, a monthly NYC venture community event designed to showcase 5 of the hottest global startups.
What kind of untapped (and far less expensive) investment opportunities can be found overseas?
How do unknown international startups get on US investor radars to secure funding and expand globally?
What does this trend mean for the NYC tech community specifically?
Powered by the Worldwide Investor Network (WIN)and hosted by Dentons global law firm, Global Innovator II will feature:
5 startups chosen to represent the best in global innovation (they'll pitch their solutions to you!)
Top tier venture capitalists judging and providing startup feedback
Exclusive networking opportunities, including a post-event cocktail, bringing together the entire startup ecosystem -- global innovators, active investors, relevant partners and the who's who of NY's tech and venture scene!
