West to West invites you to join for another groundbreaking event in the Bay Area featuring leading tech startups which “happen” to have Portuguese Founders, on April 19 at the Fairmont.

Under the theme “Big Rounds. Bigger Founders” this event is part of West to West Quarterly Event Series and will be the first bringing together, on stage, some of the hottest startups in the Valley: Talkdesk, ThousandEyes, Unbabel, and Feedzai , one of the startups created in the scope of the CMU Portugal Program.

With tens of millions raised in just the last few months, these companies are great examples of high quality tech coming out of Portugal. These founders will be on stage, in an unscripted fireside chat, talking about their journey as tech immigrants. Come learn from them about how to build very successful startups with cross-Atlantic operations.

The session will also have more speakers, including Marvin Liao (500 Startups) and Rohit Sharma (Veniam, another spent-off created on the scope of CMU Portugal, and True Ventures), the Chaiman of AICEP, Miguel Frasquilho, talking about how Portugal will host a leading tech conference for at least the next 3 years and the Executive Board Member of Caixa Capital, Stephan Morais, talking about the Portuguese and European tech scene from the perspective of the largest Portuguese private investor.

Please register TODAY to secure a spot and share this with your networks.

Co-organized with, and sponsored by, AICEP (Portuguese Trade and Investment Agency), this event will also include a reception with food and wine , and plenty time to network with Silicon Valley leaders including investors, corporate partners, service providers and other members of the entrepreneurial community.
