Develop strategic partnerships abroad

Archive 24.04.2019

Are you a scale-up or SME with international goals? Then join us at the Thon Hotel Bristol Stephanie in Brussels on 14th May for a breakfast seminar entitled “Strategic Partnerships and Internationalisation”, organised by the DALDEWOLD business law firm.

Did you know that SMEs and scale-ups that undergo internationalisation have a higher performance rate? By taking advantage of new markets, they increase their sales, build alliances so that they can move some of their activity into the more competitive regions and obtain capital more easily in order to develop.
You can expand internationally too, even with limited resources! But in order to do so, it is essential that you develop an appropriate strategy… That is why we can put you in contact with experts who can guide you.

Network with high-calibre advisors and maximise your potential

How can you identify a good partnership? How can you tackle a new market? What types of financial aid are you entitled to?

Lawyers from the DALDEWOLD firm as well as a representative from the Mercanti e Associati practice will answer your questions by way of various collaboration models (distribution, Joint-Venture and technological transfer), all the while considering the specificities of different geographical areas. Particular attention will be paid to Africa, China and several EU member states.

Register via the online form before 10th May. Participation is free and the seminar will be carried out in English.


On Tuesday 14th May from 8:30am until 11:30am, in Thon Hotel Bristol Stephanie, avenue Louise 91-93, 1050 Brussels
