AUSBW 2016 - Digital Technology

Australia United States Business Week 

About event:

Australia United States Business Week (AUSBW) provides an ideal opportunity to understand the market, network with potential partners and qualify opportunities.

The San Francisco Bay Area is arguably the centre of global technology innovation.  Ambitious, idea-driven people come to the Bay Area from around the world to connect with venture capital firms, start-up incubators, and angel investors.  The digital technology stream will examine the Bay Area system of innovation, with the objective of seeding new ideas and creating opportunities for new business between Australia and the US. 

The digital technology stream will also showcase Australian cyber security innovation and generate ideas from government, universities and industry to tackle cyber threats and take advantage of opportunities for business growth in a secure and trusted cyberspace.  

Optional: continue on to New York city to join a programme of engagement with institutional investors.

Programme Highlights:

AUSBW consists of a series of meetings, events and exchanges involving the whole business delegation plus specialised sector-specific sessions.
