Enterprise Europe Network Vlaanderen (a professional network of regional organizations whose mission is to help innovative SMEs to conquer foreign markets) organizes a seminar in Antwerp on how to find foreign business partners and how to deal with them.

Stibbe's IP partner, Ignace Vernimme, gives a presentation titled: IPRs: a key tool for innovative SMEs to conquer foreign markets.

How do I find foreign business partners and how do I deal with them?

At a certain moment in the business life cycle, every company considers taking its activities abroad. This first step in this process is often the hardest as everything appears to be unknown. You need to look for new customers, there is the language barrier, certain cultural habits, not to mention the legal aspects.

But there is good news as you are not on your own. The Enterprise Europe Network is a professional network of regional organizations that have one mission, notably helping innovative SMEs climb these mountains and conquer foreign markets. The Enterprise Europe Network member in Flanders invites you on the 27th of February 2018 to discover their services that can get you on the right track. During this Partnering Day, you can participate in four challenging workshops where the most relevant issues of international business will be discussed and illustrated.

This will not be a day of just sitting and leaning back. We will require active input from your side because even if we create enough wind, you will still need to set the sails if you want the boat to get moving. On the other hand, we also want your active contribution to find out what your concrete questions and needs are when it comes to doing international business.

Next to the workshops, in the main James Cook hall there will be our stands where you get information from the Enterprise Europe Network advisors on:

  • The Business fairs in which we participate
  • The Partnering Opportunities Database (POD)
  • The Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs Program
  • the Access2finance avenues to realize your internationalization strategy

Stibbe's IP partner, Ignace Vernimme, leads a workshop and speaks on the IP rights within international contracts. His presentation is titled: "IPRs : a key tool for innovative SMEs to conquer foreign markets".
