Description

Workshop overview:

Zambesi and the City of Sydney present a three-hour workshop to support business owners and startups looking to launch into the China and US markets. This is a practical, hands on program and you’ll walk away with a tonne of knowledge and a plan you can implement immediately; there'll be several opportunities for you to ask questions specific to your business situation.

From where to start, where to land, tapping a Chinese market here in Australia or going the full kahuna and moving to China, this workshop will leave your head spinning with the sheer scale of the opportunity, inspire your mind with new ways your business can connect with the Australia's largest trading partner and practical tips to get you off and running. Andrea will even share with you her intel on the top 5 mistakes Australians make in China.

Workshop outcomes:

  • You'll hear first hand from the cofounder of Propelleraero - who has done it and has built a sucessful business in the US. Learn what worked and what didn't. Understand why Francis and his team made certain decisions, how they used support services and marketed their business to a US market.
  • Understand the USA & China cultural and business landscapes, how to travel, select partners, choose a head-office location and plan your market entry.
  • Understand the US and China consumer and business markets. Workshop how you will market and scale your business to customers in these markets.
