The German-American Business Association (GABA) invites you to join our panel of distinguished experts who will share their experience and insights on how to increase operate and succeed in the US marketplace: 

Known as a country of unlimited opportunities and its huge market size, the United States continues to offer great potential for companies looking for international expansion. However, perceptions and reality may not always be congruent or create wrong expectations: Your success or failure will depend on how much you know about entering the US market, doing business there, product and sales development, and most importantly - financing, and its tax and legal implications. Learn about the most common pitfalls and how to avoid them from companies who crossed the Atlantic, whose representatives will share their hands-on experience and lessons learnt with the audience.  Their stories will be commented on by lawyers, CPAs and VCs, talking about their best business practices and giving their insights as to what works, and what doesn’t. Please come and join this exciting meet-up forum of international panelists.
