SVC2UK Manchester: How to Build Your US Reputation

Monday 15 Nov / 15:00 – 16:30 GMT

SVC2UK and Global Scale-up present: How to Build Your US Reputation

The SVC2UK Summit is fast approaching and on the 15th November we will be (virtually) hosting the Greater Manchester leg of the journey.

Through speaking to businesses with exciting US plans over the next 12 months, we have gathered the most pressing challenges and pulled together a team of state-side experts to share their knowledge and experience.

We know through experience that your network will be key to your US success, which is why we’re inviting you to meet some key partners that can help drive your US presence and give you the knowledge and confidence to scale.

This session will be an informal discussion followed by an opportunity to be connected to the partners involved.


Topics we’ll be covering:

  • How strong is your product market fit?
  • When is the right time to put a team on the ground?
  • Where to start building your network?
  • How to sell to a US audience?
  • How do you refine your US entry strategy?
