International Venture Capital: Revolutionizing the Startup Game

Venture capital may be as American an invention as the pickup truck--and most US-based VCs have traditionally been locally focused--but US-based
venture capitalists are increasingly stepping up their world-wide leadership in entrepreneurship. In addition, there's an emergence of truly global venture capital firms, uniquely placed to provide
assistance that's both operational and international.

And not a moment too soon: as any startup worth their angel funding these days knows, building a better mousetrap is only the beginning. Succeeding in the marketplace is the real challenge and building a company that's global in scale is ever more necessary.

Our November 2 evening event will feature transcontinental investment gurus Philippe Cases, Partner with ParTech International, one of the few
bi-continental venture firms, and Andy Kau from Walden International, who will share their insights on:

*how venture capital's current zest for globalism is changing the startup game—is it an opportunity, threat or possibly both? and their
recipe for building traction worldwide
*the difference between global and international funds and why this matters
*what the increasing professionalization of overseas VCs means for investors—and startups—in the Valley
*current stumbling blocks for startups that want to tap into global markets and how VCs can help
*corporate structures in cross border investments and which ones work best

..and much more!

So register now to join them on Nov. 2 at DLA Piper in San Francisco-and learn about
strategies and tactics that work across continents and borders--for investors as well as growth companies.
