US market entry can be difficult for all entrepreneurs, both for US citizens, and more so for international entrepreneurs. In this panel you will hear the stories of four entrepreneurs that chose to enter the US market through Austin, eschewing the traditionalist idea to enter in Silicon Valley. Why did they choose to come to Austin versus Silicon Valley? What has made their entry into the US market easier? What are the issues that they have come up against and how did they overcome these issues? Entrepreneurs from Ireland, India, Korea, and Spain, will speak and other Tech Ranch Austin entrepreneurs from Mexico, Chile, Indonesia, and Brazil will be available after the panel to talk about their lessons learned. Kevin Koym, Founder of TechRanch, will moderate this panel, using the insight he has developed in launching startups in US, Mexico, and Chile.
