Join VCs & CEOs of scale ups to discuss and perspectives about challenges and opportunities of scaling globally
In todays connected world and the ambitions of unicorn multibillion companies - going global is no longer the second part of the journey - in fact it needs to be an integral part of your strategy.
However, global expansion is not a risk free venture - according to Harvard Business Review, 75% of the business expanding globally fail and at the same time more than 70% of revenue for S&P 500 companies are outside the US (eg. Apple’s revenue split is more than 65% outside the U.S.)
Too many companies are not prepared or planning for global expansion and lots of expensive mistakes seriously hurt the company – yet it is critical for scale, diversifying revenue stream and reducing risk.
We have assembled a panel of world class technology leaders who have successfully scaled multi-billion dollar companies to explore what are the common mistakes and challenges that companies need to be carefully considering from the start with key planning around:
- Supply chain
- Market access
- Business environment
