The Panel: Sold in the USA – how to win your first US enterprise client

One of the biggest challenges facing Australian enterprise start-ups who want to break into the US market is locking down those all-important first clients. Investors and potential customers want local proof of concept, and Australian case studies and proof points are often not be seen as relevant.

So how should you position your startup in the US Market? What does the enterprise want? And how can you get that all important first US client over the line?

Joining Brad to share the tips, tricks and need-to-know info on how Australia start-ups should approach selling to the enterprise in the US are an expert panel including Remo Carbone, entrepreneur and start-up consultant, Melanie Willis, Non-Executive Director and former CEO of NRMA Investments, and Guido Tapia, CTO of PredictBench and alumnus of the elevate61 2015 program.

As well as the panel discussion and Q&A, the event will officially launch the elevate61 program for 2016 – with an opportunity to speak to the program organisers and past participants about how you can get involved. A must attend evening for start-ups, investors and anybody interested in helping Australian tech start-ups go global.
