For most products and services, the US is a large and attractive market. Overseas companies looking to expand their operations into the US can partner with US companies, set up a US subsidiary, or even transfer their worldwide headquarters to the US. Depending on your perspective, these new market entries can be competitors, partners, customers, and key sources of economic growth.

Many issues face sustainable entrepreneurs. Financial challenges are only one of the many
hurdles companies deal with. Social elements, customs, power struggles are
among the many elements to be considered by entrepreneurs. This evening's event
will be focused on the sustainable companies and the entrepreneurs who start
them. Panelists from the NGO & Venture communities will provide feedback
from their perspectives.
