Silicon Valley / California is one of the really tough places for startups. That is why we took the chance to follow the invitation to join the Thuringian delegation trip with Minister Tiefensee to the US West Coast.

mi2-factory is a worldwide thinking company. Contacts are very important and the trip was a great chance to build them. The very well prepared trip by Landesentwicklungsgesellschaft Thüringen to San Francisco, Silicon Valley and Los Angeles lead to Vungle, Facebook, German Accelerator, Stanford University, Berkeley University and many other interesting highlights.

In sum 5 Thuringian startups mi2-factory, Jenetric, Ilmsens, CrowdArchitects, and mvolution were part of the delegation trip together with important Thuringian representatives of politic, education and business.

Benjamin Tom had the opportunity to meet U.S. investors from Silicon Valley in Hana House / Palo Alto.
