In June, ACE Venture Lab will take a group of entrepreneurs for the third year to Silicon Valley for an intensive week of coaching, networking, learning, and leisure. Participants will have the chance to meet with industry leaders such as Venture Capitalists, companies such as Google and Cisco, and, of course, startups. Participants will also get the chance to learn about international expansion with a special focus on the United States and the Valley, under the guidance of experienced professionals and government support. In all, ACE’s trip to Silicon Valley brings enormous value and knowledge to those who take part.
