The 7th Global Venture Forum ‘Gateways & Hyperloops’ connects top tech founders with US industry and international investors. Started in 2013 by UC Berkeley alumni that wanted to international startups to gain market insight, networks and paths to revenue and exits.
Today, GVF is the only event in the US with a Business Development-first approach, using 6 week ‘US Discovery sprints’ and 6 month ‘US Execution sprints’ to capture 10 to 20 x ROI in shareholder value.
US industry gets a lot out of this format, as well. Just ask United Airlines, Cisco & Disney Interactive, Bank of America or Microsoft, all who deployed technologies invented outside the US to drive massive amounts of new revenue and cost savings.
