Moving your startup to the USA
February 22 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm
ARE YOU READY TO MOVE YOUR BUSINESS TO THE USA?
I’m sure you’ve heard that Silicon Valley is the Mecca for startups. It’s not always what it seems in the valley. We will hear from Matt Holden and how he moved his Sydney based startup to San Francisco, expanded and successfully sold the business and the lessons learnt along the way.
Matt is a native of Sydney and worked for multinational company Oracle (https://www.oracle.com/au/index.html). In 2003 he was transferred to Singapore where he became the Director of Sales for Asia Pacific. He then joined German software giant SAP (https://www.sap.com/australia/index.html) and headed Emerging markets for Asia.
In 2011 he founded Maventus Group (https://www.crunchbase.com/organization/maventus-media#section-overview) which comprised of locations in Singapore and development centre in India. He moved with his family to San Francisco in 2013 and his startup took off. In 2017 he sold the company in entirety and then founded Black Opal Inc (https://www.blackopal.ai) which is a funding advisory, Product prototyping and marketing centre.
