Jan. 19, 2011 SDF Singapore

On Jan, 19, 2011 in East Palo Alto at DLA Piper, SDForum with Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore (IDA), and the US Market Access Center’s iStart@SV hosted a Singapore delegation for “How to Succeed in the Valley”. Jon Baer of Threshold Ventures moderated panelists Derek Dowsett of Moss-Adams, Laurie Lumenti of Silicon Valley Bank Accelerator, Curtis Mo of DLA Piper, Sean Tan of Huawei and Henry Wong of DiamondTech Ventures. They discussed successful strategies for establishing a business in Silicon Valley and expanding in the U.S. market.

When setting up here, it helps to have a successful business in your home country that investors can evaluate. They recommended learning from local law firms and professional organizations on how to find good people. The best people may not work for the biggest companies. In fact, they may be on their own and frankly a little odd. You may pay more but you will get more in return.
