Win Customers. Secure Funding. Engage With The Best Of The Best.
From October 1-3, Worldwide Investor Network (WIN) will hold a 3-day event to introduce 9 top Israeli startups to the New York venture capital and startup community. WIN’s highly discerning selection committee will hand-pick the 3 best startups from each of the big data, new media and cyber security market categories.
Each of the selected startups will be matched with, and provided full access to best-in-class mentors, relevant potential customers and exclusive investors from the NYC venture capital community. This deliberate focus on intimate dialogues among elite talent is designed to accelerate and facilitate discovery of the “next big thing.”
WIN’s program, developed in cooperation with the Israeli Economic Mission in NY, focuses on providing key elements needed for startups looking to become global – market fit (mentorship), proof of concept (customers), and strategic investors (funding) – split into 3 days filled with interactive meetings and workshops, including:
October 1: Market
Startups meet with technology leaders, mentors from various professional disciplines, product managers, serial entrepreneurs and experienced CTOs. The aim of Day 1 is for everyone to gain a strong sense of each startup’s market fit and viability, as well as to examine specific case-by-case market penetration strategies.
October 2: Customers
Having customers in hand is a well-established factor in securing venture funding. Each selected startup will be provided with personal meetings with key decision makers at relevant potential customers and partners, eliminating the long and complicated process of closing customers from thousands of miles away.
October 3: Funding
Each selected startup will personally meet at the offices of New York’s elite venture capital leaders, providing a rare opportunity to pitch their stories to the best of the best. In addition, WIN will showcase each startup at a community event, providing widespread exposure to, and dialog with more than 250 investors and members of the greater NYC technology community.
