It is a Diamond in startup world, they say, or wait, is it still like that? Silicon Valley is the world startup hub and has the highest accumulation of venture capital. However suceeding in such a competitive environment, with all the big players around, seems almost like mission impossible. For some ambitious startups this can even mean Silicon Death. This drives companies to look for a different destination or region where to expand. And still, Silicon Valley strongly hold its position. Why is it so and what are the recommendations for taking up the path to Silicon Valley Heaven and not vice versa?

Let’s discuss with succesful businessman:

Alfredo Coppola: Alfredo Coppola is Co-CEO at US Market Access Center, the longest-standing high-tech business incubator in Silicon Valley for foreign companies seeking to successfully enter the Silicon Valley and the greater US Markets.

Roman Horacek: Company builder & Transatlantic investment project specialist. Supporting startup founders and business leaders to reach their global ambitions.

David Miklas: Founder of be3D which was aquired by Y Soft corporation in 2014. Now he is working as a startup mentor and founder of KeelCraft and InAero. 

Michal Pechoucek: Co-founder of Cognitive Security which was aquired by CISCO Systems. Currently, he works as a Director of Artcificial Intelligence Center at Czech Technical University in Prague.

Panel discussion will be moderated by Cedric Maloux, Director of StartupYard in Prague, who advises startup founders on how to grow their business and how to prepare for fund raising.
