A 7-day deep dive into the US market for B2B founders and investors
 This mission is for founders, investors and those who work with startups who would like to explore and understand the US market.

We believe the best way to understand global markets is to be there. Join us for a 7 day immersive mission to the US led by the VC team at Tribe Global Ventures. Packed with meetings, workshops, private and public events, this trip will immerse you deep into the US startup and innovation ecosystem.

There is no better way to explore the USA market opportunity than with trusted guides with strong in-market networks who will open the doors you otherwise wouldn't get access to.

Mission Launch & Connection
Everyone makes their own way to San Francisco and checks into the hotel. We officially kickoff with a mission briefing and a chance to get to know your mission leaders and fellow mission participants. Then we head to a private cohort dinner to connect and bond.
Understanding The US Opportunity
We invite special guest speakers to give you an overview of the US and north American markets, investment landscape, trends, and ecosystems. We finish the day with a private dinner with a selection of guests from Silicon Valley.
How to expand to the US
Day 3 is focussed on the practical tips and insights for US expansion, hearing from ANZ founders who have 'been there and done it'.
Raising capital in the US
On Day 4 we check out of the hotel and head out of the city down into the Bay Area to meet with Silicon Valley VCs and angel investors and see more of Silicon Valley before a late flight to Denver Colorado.
Understanding the regions of the US
On Day 5 we take a drive to Boulder to meet with the local ecosystem and understand what a regional startup hub in the US feels like, before returning to Denver for a private dinner with guests from the local Colorado ecosystem.
Putting it all together
On day 6 we finish with some workshops to help you bring the learnings of the week together into an action plan.

What our previous participants said
The Best Mission Team
 “I've been on many trade missions, and even lead some, and I can hand on heart say the Tribe team are the best in the country to be running missions. You can land in a market and hustle on your own but it’s nearly impossible to reverse engineer the doors that opened for us like that on this mission. Thank you Tribe.” 
 – Tim Brewer 
Phenomenal Doors Opened!
 “The doors that opened on this trip were just phenomenal. There was no way that the doors that were opened would have been opened without this trip and Tribe.” 
– Sofia De Meyer
You must go
 “If you are considering an international outlook for your product then Tribe Global's mission is a 'must have' to give you the information, advice and connections to help accelerate this process.  A well thought out, organised and valuable experience for Founders.”
– Barry Price
I was blown away
 “I entered this trade mission run by Tribe Global not really knowing what to expect. To say I was blown away is an understatement. Jam packed itinerary, great range of diverse speakers and events, countless networking opportunities and a travelling cohort that became a family of like-minded entrepreneurs that I now call my friends.” 
 – John Budgen
The best way to decide on a market
 “What the trip afforded us was an ability to have a real discussion on the benefits of moving into the UK and understanding the true costs, pros and cons of doing so. In addition, we were able to make a number of connections for potential clients, investors, and partners. It was an incredibly professional delegation and we highly recommend.” 
 – Angus Keck
The best mission to be on
 “I found the mission led by Tribe Global Ventures to be incredibly valuable. Getting to participate with a mission lead that specialises in the market meant we got priority access to the best sessions, speakers, partners, and events. Beyond the structured learnings and networking, we had an awesome cohort of fellow founders meaning lots of opportunities to share just in time learnings for our broader start-up journey with lots of laughs and fun had along the way.” 
 – Jimmy Smart
