Diplomacy Delivered: Entrepreneurship and Starting Up in 2021, with Peter Shankman and Sophia Hamblin Wang
November 12, 2020


Join us for a virtual discussion on how start-up businesses in Australia and the United States can learn from each other, and how Aussie entrepreneurs can access U.S. venture capital opportunities to grow and develop.

This edition of our Diplomacy Delivered virtual discussion series will feature American entrepreneur and angel investor, Peter Shankman, in conversation with Canberra-based entrepreneur and business leader, Sophia Hamblin Wang.

We’ll cover topics including how Australian startups can learn from entrepreneurs in the U.S. (and vice versa!), and delve into Peter’s experience from his three successful startup launches to help you adapt and leverage new innovation opportunities in 2021.

The discussion will be followed by a live Q&A session, and audience questions are most welcome – please submit them in advance to AskEmbassyCanberra@state.gov, or in the Q&A window during the session.

The discussion will be facilitated online by the U.S. Embassy Canberra from 11am-12pm AEST on Wednesday, November 18 via teleconferencing platform Zoom.
