For many high-growth enterprises, there’s nowhere better to start and grow than the UK, and nowhere better to expand and raise later-stage funding than the United States. 

The US offers the promise of massive commercial opportunities and plentiful venture and growth capital. However, doing business and raising money in an unfamiliar, highly-competitive environment requires thoughtful advance planning and skilled execution. 

In this facilitated Q&A session, we will discuss best practices for navigating the logistical aspects of launching and operating a UK business in the States, setting and meeting expectations for US later-stage funders. 

Here’s a sample of various frequently-asked questions: 

- When do I need to create a US company? 

- Where is the best place to set up in the States?

- How long does the US set uptake and how much does it cost?

- When should I look to raise money from US VCs?

- Do I need a US company to raise money from US VCs?

- How is hiring different in the States?

- Does everyone really sue each other all the time in the US?

- Are there government resources to assist with the US set up?

- What are some of the biggest cultural challenges in the US?

- What’s the most common US mistake UK companies make? 

The discussion will be led by Tech City UK Fellow Daniel Glazer, who leads the US Expansion group at Silicon Valley-headquartered Wilson Sonsini. Dan divides his time between London and NYC, assisting technology-driven UK companies with US expansion, fundraising and strategic partnership transactions.
