20 Oct THE SAN FRANCISCO EXPERIENCE
Posted at 11:12h in Uncategorized
A few months ago, Clex had the opportunity to network and pick the minds of experienced entrepreneurs during a trip to San Francisco and the Silicon Valley–a once-in-a-lifetime experience for our founder, Alex, and a crucial moment in Clex’s development.
This opportunity was possible through Clex’s acceptance into the Fast Track Express program offered by Barcelona Ventures and Anza Technet in February 2015. Before going to San Francisco, we endured a rigorous four months of interacting with our mentors from both Spain and the United States. Slowly, be developed the skills, knowledge, and connections to successfully enter the global market. When it came time to venture to the United States and apply what we had learned, Alex ventured solo with the amazing people at Barcelona Ventures.
In California, a packed schedule awaited. Alex pitched Clex at the San Francisco Elevator Pitch competition, dined with an engineering VC firm, and went to the Internet of Things World Event. But don’t let all of these business and technology events fool you; Alex also had a bit of time to relax and play tourist. He was able to go to Intel and Twitter’s headquarters, eat cracker jack at a San Francisco Giants game, and experience California’s amazing food scene.
At Clex, we knew going into the Fast Track Express program that it would be helpful, but we had no idea how much Alex and Clex would learn. We received invaluable feedback from US investors, learned about business culture in the US, and overall became more prepared to share Clex with the world.
Thanks again Barcelona Ventures and Anza Technet!
