9:00 – 10:30AM AZ Time
Success in one country does not always mean success in another for both incubators and founders. But in today’s global economy, working with international founders and entering new markets is more important than ever. Join us to explore the world of international incubation from the perspective of global entrepreneurs that have made that jump and those working in these incubators to create onramps to make expanding operations into the States easier for these companies.
Facilitated by Startup Tucson, the University of Arizona Center for Innovation will share lessons learned from its various international incubation and attraction programs. We will also be joined by two different international founders — one that made the move to the U.S. to take advantage of a new market and the other that has participated in an international market access program. They will discuss the benefits and tactics of working to take advantage of these international programs and markets.
This event is a special edition of Startup Tucson’s monthly series Innovation Economics.
