It’s becoming rarer that tech companies operate or plan to operate solely within their domestic markets. For nearly half of U.S. and UK tech companies, global expansion is a method of growing their customer base. But for all of the opportunities that await on foreign shores, establishing a presence in an international market requires much research to gain a clear understanding of the cultural, economic, and political nuances in any given country.
That’s why Velocity Global and Envoy Global teamed up for “Today’s Global Mobility Landscape: Insights to Help Tech Companies Succeed in 2019.” This webinar explored the nuances of some of the world’s top markets for global expansion, U.S. immigration must-knows, and ways companies can navigate unfamiliar landscapes.
