US ENTRY STRATEGY

 

DE-RISKING YOUR US ENTRY

International expansion is an exciting step in your growth but can be very costly, both financially and with your time. The US has been identified as the main target market for the majority of our founders.

Working with our partner Exit Velocity, we have designed three key workshops to help de-risk and accelerate your growth and success into the US.

Each of the interactive sessions is designed to give you practical tools to speed up your entry into the US and demystify common myths and challenges.  Led by Silicon Valley experts, the workshops will give you honest advice to ensure you can compete and thrive in this new and fast moving market.

 

Format:

There are three workshops available and each workshop group will be populated with up to 15 founders/c-suite leaders.
