This paper is aimed at people working in scaling technology companies based in the United States, who are planning on expanding into the European market. The insights and recommendations presented in this report focus on some of the potential stumbling blocks when launching a product in Europe.

The European B2C channel is growing fast and the B2B channel offers both great opportunities and presents challenges due to the many local market requirements and regulations. The legal set up and supply chain infrastructure that must be created in order to support a potential expansion is important to ensure success. Companies need to consider more than just their product when they are planning on expanding inter- nationally. This report covers these topics and more. We recommended that they are addressed for a quick and successful launch into the European market. 



In this interactive series, meet 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: talent, location, supply chain, cost, market access, business environment, and culture.

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.

Global expansion is not a risk free venture, however. According to Harvard Business Review, 75 percent of businesses expanding globally fail. And yet at the same time, more than 70 percent of revenue for S&P 500 companies are outside the US.

Too many companies are not prepared for global expansion and the expensive mistakes seriously hurt the company – yet it is critical for scale, diversifying revenue stream and reducing risk.
