About Expand to England

Are you ready to take your business out of the Nordics to the UK or other European markets? Are you ready to scale your team and expand internationally?

The UK is repeatedly ranked as one of the best locations for European businesses looking to expand internationally – it has access to a pool of talent, capital and investors, it boosts a large tech community and it is perfectly located in the middle of time zones. The UK is also a big gateway through which to enter the US market.

This event is for ambitious startups, SMEs, entrepreneurs and businesses looking to establish in the UK. You will hear practical examples from Leadoo, the Hottest Startup from Finland in October 2019, who will share their company journey and reasons for choosing the UK market. Additional speakers include Department for International Trade, Business Finland, Rochester PR, and Goodwille, all of which have substantial experience supporting businesses with expanding to the UK. Our expert speakers will provide you with key market insights, including how to promote yourself and how to avoid the pitfalls many others have fallen into.We will also touch upon Brexit from a business perspective. Expect an interactive seminar with experts on international expansion, followed by networking with fellow entrepreneurs and business leaders.
