What’s it really like to expand into the US?  Join us to hear the “war stories” and learn from some who have tried it

Your business is up and running and you are in growth mode, considering or already with some foothold in the US.  Now you want to take the next step and get more serious about the US. Where should you locate? How should you select the best US team? Are you allowed to sell your product or service across the whole US? What about cross-border pricing and tax issues? What else should you think about?

Join us to learn more about what to consider and how to avoid headaches and mistakes. Hear from a few Danish companies who’ve already tried it, and meet companies with similar challenges to build your network for the future!
