Doing Business in the USA with Robert Dewar:
A Learning Lunch event from Informatics Ventures for Technology Start-ups in Scotland
Led by Robert Dewar, Partner, Williams Mullen

This Learning Lunch event is for technology company start-up founders and executives who are either in the process of, or are planing to do, business in the USA.

GlobalScot Robert Dewar will be in Scotland in March, and has kindly agreed to lead this Learning Lunch seminar where you will have the opportunity to discuss the legalities of doing business in the USA. Bob has been a very active GlobalScot over the years and offers advice on approvals licensing, exporting, negotiating, sales, regulatory environment, business partnerships, business plan appraisal, and guidance on how to access finance, sales and marketing.

Bob will begin the seminar with a brief introduction, and then the Learning Lunch will move to a more conversational mode.

A sandwich buffet lunch will be provided, and you should advise the organizer of any special dietary requirements you may have.

To better inform discussion it would be great to know what stage you are at in your USA plans, and what key themes you would like to hear about.

Places will be limited to 15 attendees, so early registration is advised if you would like to attend.
