About Event Producers
ENRICH in the USA & Angel launch
This is our 6th year co-producing this event in Las Vegas!
The European Commission's ENRICH in the USA initiative, started in April 2017, is establishing a Network of European Research and Innovation Centres and Hubs throughout the United States that will act as a central contact point for European research and innovation actors - clusters, universities, R&D labs/centers, researchers, start-ups, Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs)... - seeking to grow and reinforce collaboration across the Atlantic. The mission of the Network is to provide standardized as well as tailor-made, research & innovation internationalisation support services, activities end events to European researchers and innovators, to accelerate their exposure, collaboration opportunities, and overall access to partners, investors and clients in the US market, and maximize their chances of success.
The ENRICH in the USA Landing Hubs provide smart specialization support to EU research and innovation actors interested in transatlantic opportunities in a specific sector and/or technology domain. These Hubs, officially recognized by the ENRICH Network, are integrated with the local/regional ecosystem and are able to introduce EU R&I stakeholders into that ecosystem, so they can best take advantage of business (through Proofs of Concept and Pilots), as well as investment and other partnership opportunities.
Similar to the ENRICH in the USA Centers, the Hubs' core Ambassadors are university incubators and innovation centers offering soft landing programs and curriculums supported by ENRICH in the USA.
The ENRICH in the USA initiative is lead in the USA by Temple University SBDC - becoming its hqs.
The ENRICH in the USA West Coast Centre, was officially opened in January 2018 in San Francisco, CA. Its location at Runway Innovation Hub, 160 Spear St, CA 94111, has close proximity to the largest and oldest innovation and entrepreneurship ecosystem (SF Bay / Silicon Valley) in the heart of San Francisco, which is a valuable asset for any R&I actor from the EU seeking to establish a first presence in the United States.
Two universities are working closely with the SF Center on joint soft-landing programs with their innovation centers: University of California Berkeley and California Polytechnic University.
Angel Launch has been producing weekly and annual events in San Francisco, Silicon Valley and Los Angeles for ten years connecting thousands of early and advanced growth startups and private companies to angels, VCs and investors representing millions in funding.
Over 90,000 have attended our events in the last 10 years. We previously produced events under the brand iHollywood Forum in Los Angeles and during trade shows such as NAB, GDC, E3 EXPO, NATPE, and CTIA. The sessions address key topics facing entrepreneurs in business and tech ventures. Each program has a panel discussion and dinner for networking and small group discussion.
We recently produced successful events in this market, Silicon Valley Investing Summit, ICO Funding Summit in Palo Alto, ICO Fest in San Francisco, helped to manage and act as master of ceremonies at CB Blockchain Conference in San Francisco; and venture forums at other trade shows including many in Las Vegas, SXSW and BIO.
We produce ventures forums in Silicon Valley Investment Forum designed to connect entrepreneurs from startups, private and public companies with investors across the board in all sectors for both tech and nontech.
We offer forums for diverse opinions on the most compelling and controversial issues facing the industry, while emphasizing the viability of new business models. Their conferences and seminars typically attract 200 to 1,000 professionals for high-level deal making.
We develop our programs to attract meetings at mid- to upper-level executives, ensuring that their sponsors’ prospects are highly qualified. Furthermore, we attract the best in class industry leaders to speak at events, which leads to routine sellouts and national press coverage.
We also produce custom events for clients including producing original events, recruiting speakers, marketing and promotion.
