Expanding to the UK – Advice for Startups

Wednesday, April 14th 
12 pm – 1pm GMT
Online webinar

Are you thinking about expanding to the UK, the leading startup nation in Europe, and want to get more insight into entering and navigating the market? 

This time we are joining forces with FBCC Corporate Member Marks & Clerk, and two Finnish start-ups Leadoo, and Logmore, who have already entered the UK markets, to bring you a webinar dedicated to advising startups on entering the UK.

Whether you are seriously thinking about expanding to the market or simply want to learn more from the perspective of a British law firm and two prominent startups and their success, join us on the 14th April!

This webinar will be interactive with lively discussion and participants are encouraged to send in their current challenges and questions prior to the event. You may send your questions via email to events@fbcc.co.uk.

You will get the chance to hear Leadoo’s and Logmore’s experience on entering the UK, and the do’s and don’ts that these two companies have learned from their experience. The webinar is co-organised together with the Norwegian-British Chamber of Commerce.
