Becoming a global company is one of the biggest goals for most startups, and not every business that sets out to do it accomplishes the goal. To successfully grow your startup from domestic to international, you will need to consider a new set of factors that might not necessarily affect a local only company. For most entrepreneurs, building and maintaining a local customer base is one of the first steps on the road to success. Once they have achieved this goal, some business owners feel they’re ready to take on the next step: Expanding Internationally.
During this huddle, we will have startup founders who have successfully entered international markets and we will be discussing some of the crucial steps startups need to take before expanding.
The Startup Huddle programme provides a platform for entrepreneurs to discover solutions to the challenges they face through purposeful engagement with a broad array of voices from the local community.
After the huddle, startup should be able to:
+ Know which steps they should take to budget for their intentional expansion
+ Create an expansion strategy
