Doing Business in the USA – Helsinki
6 April 2022
The United States continues to be a leading destination for expanding businesses. The USA’s size alone, covering four time zones across 50 states and vast cultural differences across regions, means it has to be treated as a series of regional markets, with different characteristics and business practices. Join Nora Rothrock and David Lewis for an in-person session on Doing Business in the USA, on April 6, and gain practical tips and guidance which will help you to set up, grow and develop your business, from those who have made that journey and continue to do so.
US Commercial Service, Blue Link Worldwide, and the State of Indiana have partnered with USTAXFS and many others to present this opportunity to discover how your business can grow in the USA. Representatives covering the practical side of US expansion will provide specific insight into this destination and what support is available.
