ANZA Technology Network will be holding its sixth annual Gateway to the US Summit, October 22-24, 2007 at Plug & Play in Sunnyvale, CA. ANZA has invited 15 of Australia and New Zealand's most innovative technology companies to attend this year's Summit and take part in an open showcase presentation geared toward interested US tech execs, entrepreneurs and investors on October 23.
Some of this year's innovation coming up from Down Under includes monetization of consumer videos, intelligent software sensor technology for broadband networks, collaboration solutions for today's web communities and a software communication aid for autism, among other exciting and ground-breaking technologies.
The 15 companies will showcase their products in 5-minute pitch sessions on Tuesday, October 23. Following the presentations, there will be an informal two-hour meeting session to allow US-based attendees the opportunity to meet one-on-one with the CEOs of the companies of their choice.
The ANZA Gateway to the US 2007 companies have taken part in a rigorous 3-month educational program. Each company had their US market potential analyzed by world-renowned tech marketing analyst Chris Shipley of the Guidewire Group. The 15 selected companies were then assigned a US-based mentor with experience in their particular industry niche to review US market entry plans and sharpen their showcase delivery pitch. According to one mentor, Tom Cervantez, of the law firm Davis Wright Tremaine, the ANZA event "is a great opportunity to see companies outside of what we typically see in Silicon Valley."
"The Gateway to the US 2007 Summit provides a once-a-year opportunity for those in the US technology sector to take a first look at Australian and New Zealand innovation at an early, yet well-prepared and coached stage," said ANZA CEO Viki Forrest. "It provides US technology executives and potential investors an excellent opportunity to make valuable connections."
