Are you an Italian startup planning to open an office in the United States in the next 12 months in order go global, find partners and more funding? If so you may come to New York from November 2nd to November 7th for the one-week NY Market Accelerator program organized by VentureOutNY. There is still time to apply.

Interested startups must have had already $250,000 in funding or a promising stream of revenues or a successful product on the market. During the week startups will get: introductions to esteemed venture investors and accelerator programs; workshops about visas and immigration, U.S. business formation, sales and marketing strategy, accounting, hiring, and more; networking events with 150+ members of NYC’s tech community; tours to local successful companies. On November 5th there will be the Pitch Night: Demo to an investor panel and NYC tech leaders. The cost to participate is a $1,000 fee, plus al the travel expenses (but many meals are included in the program).

The past two editions were very helpful for the feedback that the startups got from investors and other members of the NYC tech community, as I explained on StartupItalia!

Full disclosure: the book “Tech and the Cityis a required reading for startups participating in the VentureOutNY program. Actually, all NY entities that organize similar programs have adopted ours as a textbook: we are glad it’s so helpful.
