In the wake of COVID-19, businesses are not just having to think through their investment and management strategies, but are also considering the need for expansion to overseas markets for business growth and to achieve scale. Offshore markets can throw up some significant hurdles, unique laws and operational complexities for new entrant, which must be understood and addressed to ensure long-term success of the business in those markets.
In this workshop, Lyndon Masters from DLA Piper and Kellie Dyer will discuss the key considerations and best practices that companies need to know when going into and doing business in new countries. In addition, Lyndon will provide an overview of the sources of capital raising in Australia across the lifecycle of a fast growth company and best practice for what will make your company attractive to VC funds (Australia and overseas) and other investors.

⮚ What are some key legal considerations for going global or entering into a new country?
⮚ What is my go-to-market strategy?
