For many high-growth enterprises, there’s nowhere better to start and grow than the UK, and nowhere better to expand and raise later stage funding than the United States.

In this facilitated Q&A session, we will discuss best practices for launching and operating a UK business in the U.S., as well as setting expectations for later stage funding.
