TradeUp has been proud to appear at several business events this fall:

  • On 6 November, I participated a panel discussion “Online P2P Lending, Crowd-Servicing and FinTech Impact” at Metropole Global’s Alternative Funding Forum in Los Angeles. Organized by TradeUp Advisor Victoria Silchenko, the Forum is annual, exclusive setting providing an unmatched opportunity to meet some of the most influential financiers, see the entire panorama of financing tools available to start-ups and emerging growth ventures, and connect with industry peers from all over the world.
  • On 2 December, I had the honor to organizing with the Small Business Administration’s (SBA) front office an event “Entrepreneurship as a Component of National Power”, featuring SBA Administrator and President Obama’s Cabinet Member Maria Contreras-Sweet, at the Council on Foreign Relations in Washington, DC. Administrator Contreras-Sweet discussed with an exclusive group the many ways in which the SBA opens new opportunities for American small businesses to expand to overseas markets.

  • On 3 December, our COO Denis Bandera-Duplantier spoke at the California ExporTech Program to an elite group of small businesses that are looking to expand into international markets. Denis educated companies that are beginning to export about some of the financing difficulties they may face and how to overcome them. Given TradeUp’s commitment to helping companies with globalizing ambitions, we were grateful for the opportunity to attend and speak.

Denis, I and the entire TradeUp team have learned tremendously in these events and built new relationships with great entrepreneurs, leading policymakers, and smart investors. Big thanks to Laurel and Victoria for wonderful events and all the hard work behind them! We forward to a new year of engagements, starting at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas right on 5 January.
