Your business is growing!
Time to set your sights on growing beyond the UK - what better place to expand or raise funds than the United States?
Why the US? With the promise of huge commercial opportunities, buoyant ventures, and a growth capital environment, the US has been the key to success for many companies.
That said, you’ll find that doing business and raising money across the pond can be unfamiliar and highly competitive. If you’re looking to expand to the US, you will need careful planning, sound advice and be armed with the best practices to navigate launching and operating a UK business in the United States.
On this year’s Thanksgiving, we’ve got you covered in this Q&A session where our Associate Director and Head of Scaleups Sam Ross interviews Tech Nation Fellow Daniel Glazer US Expansion group lead at Silicon Valley-headquartered Wilson Sonsini.
Key questions will include:
- Do I need a US company in order to raise money from US VCs?
- Where is the best place to set up in the States?
- How long would US set up take and how much does it cost?
- How is hiring different in the US, and what’s the optimal US team?
- Does everyone really sue each other all the time in the US?
If you have any questions in advance, feel free to drop us an email at email@example.com
