ANZA Technology Network completes a 3-part Gateway to the US webinar series on Tuesday, 27 July with a free, 1-hour webinar, “Funding Your Business: Options and Opportunities”. The webinar will give Australian entrepreneurs and CEOs of startup and growing businesses an overview of how to access the dollars they need for growth in Australia and expansion into the US market.

Doron Ben-Meir, CEO of Commercialisation Australia will lead off the webinar in one of his first public speaking engagements since taking the helm at CA earlier this year. Ben-Meir aims to address CA’s program model and applicant eligibility and will take audience questions.

To round out the perspective on funding beyond government grants, the webinar will also feature serial entrepreneur Jennifer Zanich and angel investor Max Shapiro. Zanich is currently the General Manager of Xumii Services and has raised in excess of $30m in venture capital for several cross-Pacific technology companies. Shapiro, the CEO of PeopleConnect, is also a member of the world’s largest network of angel investors, the Keiretsu Forum.

“We are pleased to be bringing this level of speakers and discussion to the Australian innovative technology community,” said Viki Forrest, CEO of ANZA Technology Network, who will moderate the webinar. “We work with Australian entrepreneurs and CEOs to make an informed decision about business expansion opportunities into the US market and we to want make information on all types of funding options available.”

The ANZA Gateway to the US program consists of this series of free one-hour webinars, followed by a one-day introductory workshop that includes market analysis and activities designed to craft an effective message for US investors and technology executives. The workshops are held in Australian capital cities from August 23-Septemeber 1. Companies can then take part in three online consultations to prepare for the Gateway to the US Executive Summit in Silicon Valley, October 25-27.
