Why a team of "Sherpas"
from Silicon Valley
Each participating startup benefits from unique access to one of our Silicon Valley sherpas who has a network in the field of the startup and therefore has immediate access to "insiders" who will be used to evaluate its value proposition in relation to its target market.
The depth of the network of our Silicon Valley partner, US MARKET ACCESS CENTER (USMAC), with whom we have been collaborating for a long time, ensures that we always have world-class sherpas who are both experts and investors.
