The workshop provides specific tools, guidance and frameworks for successful international growth, scaling and fundraising. It is aimed at early-stage startups from all industries, teams that have not yet founded, as well as teams from the university sector.
The goal is to raise awareness for dealing with topics like scaling and internationalization from the very beginning. With a mix of didactic presentations and interactive questions, our speaker Marc Filerman, Managing Partner US, German Entrepreneurship, will address topics like captable, problem-solution-fit as well as the perspective of international venture capital and much more.
He will give you an overview of the most important areas, buzzwords and technical terms and explain why the focus should not always be on the domestic market but also on the international market. In the end, you will leave the event with a global scaling mentality, an understanding of the success factors of internationalization and fundraising, and insights into opportunities in relevant markets worldwide.
