Preparing expanding companies for NYC with the TEP Webinar Series

TEP Webinar Series

For TEP ’17, we developed a new feature: the TEP Webinar Series, which covered the fundamentals of U.S. business development for international startups seeking to expand across the Atlantic and initiate traction in the U.S.

The main objectives were to equip all participating startups with the necessary knowledge, skills, and tools in order to “hit the ground running” in NYC and to answer any questions about scaling to the U.S. before departure. The Webinar Series consisted of five classes of 40 minute presentations by expert speakers, followed by a Q&A.
