If you are already doing business in the US, or thinking about it, an upcoming breakfast briefing in Galway could be just the ticket.
Doing Business in the US will outline the business environment in the US and the supports available to Irish companies looking to expand into one of the world’s biggest markets.
The briefing, which is being organised by Galway Technology Centre, WestBIC and the US Embassy, will take place in Galway Technology Centre on Wednesday, January 29, from 8-9.30am.
One of the speakers will be Connor Kenny, a commercial investment assistant at the US Embassy, and the lead advisor on Irish investment in the United States on behalf of the Federal government of the US.
John Randles, CEO of Siren, a member company of GTC, will also address the event. Siren has just won a major US contract and has set up an office in Philadelphia.
The final speaker will be Mary Rodgers, CEO/founder of Stateside Solutions and Innovation Community Manager at Portershed, Galway. Mary will speak about her experience of living in the US for 13 years and then establishing the US market entry company, Stateside Solutions.
The talks will be followed by a panel discussion and question and answer session. Pat O’Grady, Senior Business Development Advisor at Enterprise Ireland, will take part in the panel discussion.
“Our mission is to help local business in any way we can, and we are lucky to have this expertise available to us in terms of deep familiarity with the US market. This event is free of charge and should appeal to anyone with an interest in doing business in the US,” said Niamh Costello, General Manager, GTC.
There will also be opportunities to network at the event.
GTC is located in Mervue Business Park and is planning a major celebration to mark its 25th anniversary later in the year.
