How to expand your business to The United States
North America creates a viable market area to expand to but before making a decision on taking your startup to the US, various different factors should be considered. In this workshop Max Kirk Ludvig from Angelus Funding is going to cover aspects related to legal, immigration, taxation, insurance, banking, workplace, government support, hiring, funding, and sales issues in North America. After receiving a comprehensive overview of “Coming to America”, you are better equipped to make the exciting decisions about conquering new market areas. Make sure to sign up for this workshop taking place on Thursday 4th 11am-12pm.

How to excel at public relations
When it comes to effectively sharing your story with journalists (and eventually the world), the power of storytelling is vital. Unlike investors, journalists are not interested in your pitch but are longing to be seduced by your fascinating narrative. But how do you improve your storytelling skills and get the right people to root for your startup? John Cozzi and Oona Colliander from a PR agency San Francisco will share some tips and tricks on how to wow conference journalists with your unique story on Wednesday 3rd 10-11am. Register here

How to create an app that parents fall in love with?
A day dream of an every parent is to cut their kids’ screen time. But what if this screen time would not be cut but harnessed into learning and development instead? Imagine creating an app that both kids and their parents would love equally much - sounds like a success! This is precisely the topic Kokoa will cover in their workshop. Olli Alvo will answer the question  “How to ensure the app's educational value and communicate that to the buyers?” by providing concrete approaches for apps and games’ educational design and refining the marketing message. If EdTech is your cup of tea, you can share the enthusiasm with Olli and other attendees on Thursday 4th 10-11am. Sign up here!
