Finding, developing and maintaining relations for business
Many entrepreneurs want to do business in the United States.They expect that they can enter the market with their Dutch mentality. Although the Netherlands and the US seem to have many similarities, the reality is completely different.
Doing business in another country is always a challenge and certainly in the US. Every state has its own culture and rules. And even within a state there are many differences.
Fortunately, more than 100 Dutch companies have preceded you in Texas. They have all found their way. At the NBSO we receive questions daily about doing business in Texas. That is why we have developed a series of workshops in collaboration with SCORE and Houston Community College with the theme "The secrets of doing business in Texas".
The topics of the workshops are:
- Finding, developing and maintaining relations
- Becoming more successful as a foreign organization
- Finding sources of funding
- Understanding social and cultural differences
During each workshop, different experienced entrepreneurs will give you tips and tricks about doing business in Texas. Whether you have been working in Texas for years or want to start a business in the region,these workshops are interesting for anyone who wants to do business successfully in Texas.
