Please note, the format of this workshop is designed to give both broad advice around international expansion and market entry, plus very specific, tailored advice and guidance to address your individual needs and circumstances.

Who should attend:

CEOs, founders and senior managers of digital and tech scale-ups looking to expand internationally in the next 3 to 6 months and with turnover in the range £2m to £50m.
