SCALE UP USA – in partnership with US MAC

OBJECTIVES 

Cap Digital and US Market Access Center (US MAC) propose to tech companies from Paris Region a custom-made program in order for them to access the US market as fast as possible.

About US MAC

US MAC is a non-profit business accelerator located in Silicon Valley. Since 1995, US MAC has helped over 800 companies from over 50 countries get started, grow and succeed in Silicon Valley. This structure is supported by the San Jose State University Research Foundation, and help emerging technology companies from foreign countries seeking to do business in the United States. US MAC functions both as a “soft landing” and a launching pad for emerging tech companies from overseas. Like all accelerators, they provide virtual and physical office space in several locations in the Bay Area, conference rooms, shared use of office machines, plus Internet and phone connectivity.
But US MAC also provides business development support, mentoring, marketing and sales consulting, access to VCs, business angels, legal, financial and accounting expertise, and market research – all the essentials for an emerging business. More importantly, US MAC provides relationships (thanks to an extensive database of contacts throughout Silicon Valley, and an enormous network to draw upon), and help their clients get into almost any Silicon Valley corporation or venture capital firm.

PRINCIPLES AND VALUE PROPOSITION

Over an eight-week period (2-4 weeks of in-country preparation, then 4-6 weeks of Business Development in Silicon Valley), five innovative companies selected after a formal and rigorous selection process will benefit from individual support that will help them enter the US market as rapidly and strategically as possible, and with the least amount of risk.
