Michelle Wright heads to Silicon Valley with SVC2UK

8th September, 2014

Cause4 CEO Michelle Wright is heading to Silicon Valley with sixteen other female CEOs of fast-growing businesses, on a trip run by SVC2UK, the British Consul General and the UKTI team in San Francisco.

This is the first programme of its kind, and sees the CEOs join sessions, networking receptions and opportunities to talk with with leaders at companies such as Google, Facebook, Eventbrite, Silicon Valley Bank, and other recently scaled start-ups.

The programme aims to provide mentoring and networking opportunities to expand the reach of these UK women-led companies to the US market.  On average, the annual growth rate of these UK companies’ turnover is more than 300 percent.  The CEOs are all looking to the US for their international expansion.
