Your day starts with a briefing on Australia’s digital economy, from the UK’s main government representative for business in Australia. Just 10 minutes later you’re in a room with CEOs, directors and country managers from UK tech companies which have already conquered the Australian market. By 9.30am you’ve gleaned helpful practical tips from six different entrepreneurs who are a few steps ahead of you on their global expansion journey.
With just enough time for a coffee break, you arrive in Singapore to hear from a leading business consultant at 10am. Another six entrepreneurs enter the room over the next hour and share their experiences of successfully setting up operations in Singapore as a UK company. Somehow, you jet back to Europe before midday. Two hours later you have new insights and fresh ideas about potential markets for your business in Germany, France and The Netherlands.
You clock off at 7pm. You’ve spent the last 3 hours frantically typing down notes on the differences between New York, Boston, Atlanta and the Bay Area for business opportunities. Your note-taking has been even more diligent than usual; you don’t know when you’ll next be hearing from people on the ground in so many different markets.
Such a productive day would have been unimaginable last year, when in-person experiences were the assumed default. But in a post-pandemic context, travelling the globe to hear directly from those with local expertise can be streamlined. Virtual is the new normal, commutes have been almost forgotten. We may have lost some of the intimacy of live interactions, but the efficiency gains can be put to good use.
Join Tech Nation on a round-the-world tour on the 8th September, with panel discussions and presentations on international expansion from the likes of Darktrace, Transferwise, Babylon Health, Station F, EY, World Economic Forum and many more.
You’ll be part of a global network of over 2,500 founders, CEOs and leadership teams from scaling companies, as well as corporates, investors, government, press and others within the tech ecosystem. By connecting and sharing insights across the world, we’ll provide the foundations for hundreds of companies to make informed decisions on where to expand internationally and how to succeed in practice.
