Studies show that startups are going global more quickly than ever before: economic forces and globalization are pushing startups to explore new markets, technology has made cross-border transactions and communication comfortable and accessing capital and reaching more early adopters are strong incentives to expand internationally. However, founding, building, and growing a global startup will require pretty serious work. This session discusses opportunities in new markets, strategies that startups should focus when they decide to go global and what pitfalls to avoid. Key discussion themes include:

  • Tips for startups that are building a global strategy
  • Go local to go global – how important is that in today’s interconnected world
  • Choosing the right markets and then building a country specific strategy
  • How different countries are supporting startups and how can you as a startup take advantage
