The U.S. Embassy is a proud supporter of the GoSiliconValley program. Run by the Wirtschaftskammer and Aussenwirtschafts Service, the GoSilicon Valley program brings Austrian entrepreneurs to California, assisting them with placement into local incubators and accelerators, as well as linking them with the local venture capital and investment networks.
On March 5, the Embassy hosted a send-off reception for this year’s batch of GoSiliconValley participants. Participants were greeted by Clare Zimmerman, Political Officer at the U.S. Embassy, as well as representatives from the Wirtschaftskammer and Advantage Austria. Participants also received information on business and investor visas from the Consular Section of the Embassy and met with Go Silicon Valley alumni to share experiences.
