Software Shortlist off to Silicon Valley

Good news. We’re off to Silicon Valley to explore opportunities for Software Shortlist in the US market and to pitch the business to an audience of industry experts. It’s all part of the ANZA Gateway to the US Summit.

While we’re there, we are setting aside time to meet with executives from organisations interested in partnering with us.

There are still some slots available if you’d like to meet. We are seeking partners to help us reach a large number of small businesses. In return, we can offer a range of benefits, including useful content, discounted access to services, co-promotion opportunities, and more. Sound interesting? Let’s talk…

Our recent press release about the trip is below:

Software Shortlist will soon be exploring inroads to the US market through ANZA Technology Network’s Gateway to the US Summit.

Culminating in a 3 day event in Silicon Valley in early October, the ANZA Gateway to the US program helps connect innovative Australian companies with potential investors and business partners in the world’s largest market.

As its name suggests, Software Shortlist helps small businesses make better software choices by providing a shortlist of relevant options.  Their online software comparison service dramatically reduces the time and money that businesses spend choosing software.

Software Shortlist co-founders Craig Westcott and Xavier Russo will both attend the event, which includes a five minute pitch and various networking sessions and business forums.

“Making a major impact in the US is a top priority for us. The US is home to many leading software companies and over 25 million small businesses,” said Craig Westcott.

While in Silicon Valley, the two founders have set aside time to meet with executives from organisations that are interested in partnering with Software Shortlist.

“We will be talking with organisations that reach large numbers of small businesses and want to help them boost productivity by applying the right software,” said Xavier Russo.

The Software Shortlist team will be in Silicon Valley from 3rd to 11th October. To arrange a meeting or to find out more, please email
