ANZA Will Provide Fast Track Global Business Opportunities in China and US as Part of $8M Program over Next Three Years

ANZA Technology Network announced today that it has been engaged as a partner in the Victorian Government’s $8 million Smart SMEs Innovation Commercialisation Program (ICP).

ANZA operates in Silicon Valley and Shanghai and provides key strategic business connections for Australian companies ready to enter the US or China market. ANZA will offer a specialized version of its Fast Track program to Victorian SMEs with strong global potential across a wide range of innovative technologies including medical technologies, sustainable (environmental) technologies and small technologies (nano or micro).

"The Fast Track program will provide tailored one-on-one mentoring to assist export-ready Victorian SMEs to execute their market entry plans and accelerate their success in the US or China," said Viki Forrest, CEO of ANZA Technology Network.

SMEs are matched to commercialization experts who have built globally competitive businesses. These experts will function as mentors to selected company CEOs. Each company will receive in-market mentoring on business analysis, market entry planning and implementation assistance for a period of 12 months.
