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.
