Valencian startups have a new opportunity to make themselves known in the US market and generate business in America through the new mission to Miami that Startup Valencia is launching from the 16th to the 23rd of April of 2023 through Hospitality Ventures.

This action aims to build a real business bridge between the Valencian Community and Miami. As the main novelty, startups participating in this mission will also have access, through IVACE International, to eMerge Americas 2023, the most important tech event in Florida, to be held at the Miami Beach Convention Center on the 20th and 21st of April of 2023. On top of this, there will be the possibility of a stand at the event in the Spain Pavilion, run by IVACE International, both for startups and agents of the Spanish ecosystem from any tech sector (corporations, public bodies, accelerators, investors, etc.). Startups will also be eligible for a place in the final of the Startup Showcase 2023 competition.

Among the meetings scheduled throughout this international mission are visits to the main VCs, lawyers, banks, accelerators and other potential business partners in the area. Time has also been allocated for networking and leisure activities, so that participants can live the full Miami experience.

Startups from the Valencian ecosystem will also be able to showcase their projects, knowledge and technologies to give a boost to their internationalisation strategy.

A total of 15 startups will be selected to take part in this mission, and they must meet a series of requirements: they must have a tech background, be in their growth phase, and have developed an innovative solution.

As Nacho Mas, CEO of Startup Valencia, explains, “Through this mission we want to promote those startups that consider the United States and Latin America to be potential markets for their products and services, and destinations in which to establish part of their company or in which to seek investment from large funds”.

 

Valencia-Miami, connected cities

This new mission to Miami comes after the success of the one held in October this year. On that occasion, 18 startups had the chance to explore the business opportunities offered by the East Coast of the US and visit important international investors such as Genesis Ventures, Taram Capital, Animo VC, The Venture City, Key International, Gold Coast Angel Investors, Silicon Valley Bank, Microsoft for Startups, Salesforce Ventures, Amazon AWS and several family offices.

Startup Valencia had already been promoting the connection between both ecosystems through actions such as the Miami Valencia Forum, held within the framework of Valencia Digital Summit 2021, which launched a collaboration channel between the hubs of both cities to facilitate the exchange of talent and investment and promote international business opportunities.
