D-r Burton Lee, lecturer at Stanford University in California, executive manager of Innovarium Ventures and partner of New Man's Business Accelerator in USA visited Macedonia before the start of the acceleration and academic program of New Man's in San Francisco in Autumn 2016.

D-r Lee had consultant sessions with 6 startup teams, 4 of which are from the Accelerators' portfolio and 2 are supported from the Macedonian Fund for Innovation and Technology. According to him, the main challenges that Macedonian companies face are in the lack of knowledge about global market trends and how to successfully draw the attention of investors and place their products on the US, Western European and Asian markets.
