3 interactive workshops for your first steps in the US

To enable Brussels start-ups active in the new technology industry to successfully approach this prestigious market, we are offering a series of three complementary workshops led by experts from NUMA, a New York-based company. These workshops will be held online on 29 January, 2 February and 4 February 2021, from 4:00 pm to 5:30 pm.

Succeeding in the United States is a dream for many entrepreneurs and a rite of passage for any technology company with the ambition of developing internationally. Because we believe in the saying “The art of success consists in knowing how to surround yourself with the best”, we’re putting you in touch with top American experts to help you with your efforts.

Demystifying the accessibility of the American market

Our three sessions, which will take a very personalised approach, will be structured around a question, an assumption and a concern about the American market.

  • Friday 29/01/2021 from 4:00 pm to 5:30 pm: Understanding the American market

What do you need to know before getting started? What are the main sectors and factors to consider once there? Ecosystems, regulations, competition, trends, etc.

  • Tuesday 02/02/2021 from 4:00 pm to 5:30 pm: Assess your business’ potential in the US

You’ll have the opportunity to present your project and to benefit from feedback from American technology experts

  • Thursday 04/02/2021 from 4:00 pm to 5:30 pm: Success stories from Brussels entrepreneurs

Lastly, be inspired by accounts from Belgian entrepreneurs who have completed the process and are well-established in America. What challenges did they have to overcome? What advice do they have for novices?
