3 top tips from Wibe van de Vijver, Director of Markets @ Techleap.nl
- Readiness is key. It’s a fine balance between on the one hand not being too slow and on the other hand, making sure you have sufficient resources and product-market-fit to hit the ground running.
- Allocate enough time for your first local hires. When building a team in a new market with a different culture, it's extra difficult to assess the right fit. Your first local hires set the tone for the local team and so will impact your success.
- Ask help from other entrepreneurs expanding in the same region and offer help for those who ask for your help.
