Event description

Description

For many German high-growth enterprises, there’s nowhere better to start and grow than Europe, and nowhere better to expand and raise later-stage funding than the United States.

The US offers the promise of massive commercial opportunities and plentiful venture and growth capital.

However, doing business and raising money in an unfamiliar, highly-competitive environment requires thoughtful advance planning and skilled execution.

In this facilitated Q&A session, seasoned entrepreneurs who scaled to the US together with US advisors will discuss best practices for navigating the logistical aspects of launching and operating a German business in the States, and setting and meeting expectations for US later-stage funding.

FAQs such as the following will be addressed:

  • When do I need to create a US company?

  • Where is the best place to set up in the States?

  • How long does US set up take and how much does it cost?

  • How do buying processes and sales cycles vary?

  • What are the key differences in hiring talent?

  • When should I look to raise money from US VCs?

  • Do I need a US company to raise money from US VCs?

  • How is hiring different in the States?

  • Does everyone really sue each other all the time in the US?

  • Are there government resources to assist with US set up?

  • What are some of the biggest cultural challenges in the US?

  • What’s the most common US mistake German companies make?

...

The facilitated Q&A session with aspiring US entrepreneurs, US advisors, as well as German Accelerator Tech alumni, will be held over dinner and drinks. It is an "invite only" event.

We are looking forward to seeing you there! Drinks and food will be provided.
