Lubusz Entrepreneurs on an Economic Mission to Silicon Valley
USPTC, as a nonprofit organization with years of experience in bridging Polish-American relations and promotion of Polish high technology, science institutions and corporations in California, partnered with the Lubuskie Employers’ Organization (OPZL) in organizing an economic mission to the United States for nine Lubusz companies active in the IT sector: Akson Electro, AMB Software, ASTEC, Cinkciarz.pl, Konfrontuj, Opero, Petra IT Solutions, Sinersio Data Center, and StreamSoft. The mission visited the United States, including Silicon Valley, in November 2014.
USPTC provided organizational and technical support as well as a distinctive program of events for the mission. During meetings with representatives of startup companies and of American business partners and investors based in Silicon Valley, Polish companies learned about the Silicon Valley’s scientific and business environments. They also had the opportunity to make presentations to Silicon Valley’s investors and strategic partners. The most impressive examples of technology and academic transfers were seen during the tours of Google, Oracle, and Stanford University. The program of this unique mission included also the trip to Techweek Los Angeles, the nation’s leading technology conference where the next wave of technology and innovation was displayed.
