The days of waiting until your company is public before you start looking for opportunities overseas are well and truly over. International markets now represent an important source of customers, materials and revenue early in a company’s development. Europe remains a strong market with early technology adopters, a large population, and many cultural similarities which make it naturally appealing to US tech companies.
Whether you are already operating in Europe, or see that as the next step for your business, this session will cover the essential tips and tricks you need to stay ahead, including:
· How to structure and establish your European business;
· Getting international hiring right;
· Protecting your product and your brand; and
· Other regulatory and legal issues which can distract rapidly expanding companies.
Steve Wilson and Sian Story are UK qualified lawyers based in Osborne Clarke’s Silicon Valley office, and have spent years advising US companies on the issues arising from European expansion. Join them, together with DWT for an informal seminar addressing the above issues, and many more…including your questions.
