So, you’ve secured your first customers in APAC. Now what?
Solidifying and growing your business in Asia requires careful planning:
- How do I promote my brand?
- What’s the optimal way to establish my local presence?
- How do I protect my intellectual property?
- What do I need to support my customers?
- How do I get paid out of Asia?
To answer these and many more questions, we’ve invited experts from law firm Lewis Silkin and corporate & advisory service provider Acclime who specialise in supporting UK companies to expand into APAC with over 13,000 clients across the region.
At this interactive workshop, you’ll hear stories of companies which encountered unexpected challenges – and how they solved them. You’ll also be able to get on-the-spot advice on your own business situation.
This 60-minute presentation and Q&A will be followed by a networking session over light refreshments – so you can get even more advice to help you to move things forward in APAC.
This workshop is a joint techUK and Intralink initiative, and a part of the UK Government-funded ‘UK-APAC Tech Growth Programme’.
