Our adventure with Impact USA
10 months accomplished in just 10 weeks: that’s how we would summarize our experience with Impact USA! As we already mentioned here, Dawex was selected to join a small group of hand-picked French startups for the Impact USA program in San Francisco. Driven by the Business France network, this initiative should speed up our efforts to expand into international markets.
The program fulfilled its promises…
In just 10 weeks, we were able to discover the Silicon Valley ecosystem, meet with the stars of the hi-tech scene, and even benefit from mentoring by experts from Growth Hacking and Customer Success.
Even better: in just 10 weeks, we doubled the number of registrations on our marketplace. We launched marketing campaigns on two continents and established relations with Fortune 100 companies.
What impressed us the most? How fast we integrated the local entrepreneurial community. While things generally go faster in the United States than in France, Impact USA picks up the pace even more.
The gamble paid off for Dawex! We plan to continue our development in the United States and open an office in San Francisco soon. A big thank-you to the entire Impact USA team! Thank you, Stéphane, thank you, Kahlil ;)!
