Revealing the steps to international success for marketplaces and ecommerce

30 minutes presentation
Gernot Schwendtner weGrow

As a founder of a successful ecommerce marketplace you will look across the border at one point. Why? because you want to grow, fast. Internationalisation has shown to be a journey which is not always easy. Since this is a break it or make it moment for many companies, our moonshot is to make this process as easy as boarding a plane and flying to a new country. During this session we will share our best practices from experiences of weGrow and its clients when it comes to expanding to new markets.
