Note to International Companies

The Secure Erie Accelerator can only benefit you if you want to expand into the US market. In order for us to work with your venture, you must have a US parent corporation (either now or by the time you start the program). This does not mean you need to relocate to the U.S. You can run operations from any country, and a lot of our companies are based in other countries, in fact.
