  • # 3 HOW TO RAISE MONEY IN SILICON VALLEY – THE SEARCH FOR THE HOLY GRAIL - US Market Access Center
    money seems like a great idea to most international entrepreneurs So not surprisingly one of the top ten questions of international entrepreneurs is How Do we raise money in Silicon Valley In theory this seems like a great idea The reality is more challenging First of all no matter how brilliant the business idea Silicon Valley investors mostly invest in Silicon Valley companies Some of the partners like to make short trips in their private planes so an occasional investment in San Diego L A or even Provo Utah might have its charm Vilnius however is out of range What Silicon Valley venture investors almost never do is invest in European companies based in Europe and subject to European laws I spoke to a local VC a few days ago who told me his firm almost invested in a German company recently After 50 000 of legal work just to get the process going they decided against it It was just too hard it was too different from the familiar cookie cutter model here in the valley And of course even if they had done the investment it would still leave the firm very far away from its investment In my work with international companies I meet a lot of entrepreneurs who come to Silicon Valley sometimes on techno tours arranged by the local trade outpost Most often they want to meet with and pitch to Silicon Valley investors Most of the focus is on pitch training to make them better presenters more like local startups Sorry but this is ass backwards While you may get some great feedback and new ideas talking to Valley investors one thing you can be almost certain of not getting is an investment into your European company And while pitch training can be a good thing at the right time what most companies are missing is HARD EVIDENCE not more slides Is it impossible for European companies get Silicon Valley funding No But you need to jump through a lot of hoops to get there a ton of focused hard work You will need to get real insight into the market and reach a deep understanding of how and where your product fits in and figure out how to get customers This takes time so it s not a viable strategy if you will be running out of money say a week from Monday Assume it will take 3 6 months to validate your business model and another 3 6 to get some customers onboard and get ready to take your investment case to the venture community From the time you start pitching it will take you 6 months or more until you have a next round of funding in the bank You might do it faster and be pleasantly surprised but those are the kinds of numbers you should expect That is a total of 12 18 months In the meantime you will need your Euro VCs angels government agencies income from European

  • #2 How to Get Started in SiliconValley – or How to Eat an Elephant? - US Market Access Center
    Learn We recommend a three stage process Stage 1 is the LEARN Phase where you focus on 1 documenting your assumptions guesses about customers their problems your value proposition the competitive landscape and where you and your product fit in This will take you two to three months and requires only a small team 1 or 2 people a part time or virtual office and a car a Vespa or if you are in really good shape maybe just a road bike You can do it in smaller chunks e g iterations of 2 weeks at a time or all at once The nice thing about this approach is that when you are done you will be a whole lot smarter without having emptied your bank account Stage 2 is the SELL phase You take what you learned and prove it by selling to your first customers in the New World This can take anywhere from weeks to months depending on what you are selling to whom and how they buy This too can be done with a minimalistic team and a lean budget More about this in a later post The third stage is the GROW phase Now you have insight customers proof points for your business model and an investment case to take to Silicon Valley VCs assuming your business requires venture capital You succeeded in nailing it so now it s time to think about scaling it This three stage rocket method is a Lean capital efficient approach to going to market and growing your company through Silicon Valley Not everyone gets to product market fit but even if you don t you won t break the bank figuring it out And it should leave you the time and money runway in Valley speak to adjust your
