In 2015, SelectUSA launched the first tech investment mission to the U.S. of FinTech startups, in collaboration with Wayra UK—the London based accelerator backed by Spain’s Telefónica. A delegation of 8 companies (10 delegates) visited Washington, D.C., New York, and Boston to learn about the U.S. market opportunity and to scope these cities as potential destinations to launch and scale. The program included workshops, networking events, and meetings with potential clients, partners, investors, and key private and public industry stakeholders. To date, 50% of the companies now have a U.S. presence and 3 have successfully received new investment to support their U.S. expansion plans.Quelle: U.S. Commercial Service
