[PROGRAM BLOCK] Growth Academy

How do you take a piece of the American pie and not get burned in the process? Find out at PODIM 2022

A wise guy once said: “The REAL American Dream is not about a garage full of new cars, winning the lottery, or retiring to a life of ease in Florida. It’s about doing work that has meaning, work that makes a difference, and doing that work with people you care about.”

But for companies – it doesn’t matter if you’re a startup, corporation or SME – going global and targeting the dreamy American market is tough and usually just a few succeed! Why?

Well, you have to face new customers, become a part of an entirely different culture while finding new approaches to sales, marketing and even product development, as well as hire new employees and build brand credibility usually out of nothing. Those are most certainly not easy tasks while facing the world’s biggest market, but there’s good news – they can be done! So let’s hit the road, Jack, to the land of the free and home of the brave!

Our next program block and its experienced speakers will help you find answers to all the burning questions about how to take a piece of that American pie for yourself and not get burned in the process.
