This series of 6 events, broadcast live on the internet in 20 languages, is designed to teach you everything you need to start a business or expand your business into the U.S. Market.  You will learn how to identify opportunities around the world, create a plan, and enter the American market.

We will start with an introduction to low-risk businesses from the ground up. We will share how to get ideas, how businesses start and succeed in the U.S., and how to grow sales of existing businesses. Our focus on low-risk is a  new way of thinking about starting a presence in the USA, often different from other countries. Low-risk startups succeed more frequently and are less painful on founders.

You then will learn how to find suppliers and partners, how to market in the USA, and how to do it all for as little money as possible.  Everything you need to know about import and export, raising money, not raising money (is it a good idea?), how to get your business to the number one spot on Google worldwide, how to get free media coverage in America, how to hire and fire, how to deal with banks and investors, and how to sell the business in the end. The curriculum is designed to teach you everything you need to know to grow a business, all with our focus on risk reduction.

We are broadcasting all 80 hours live around the world in 20 languages using the “Automated Voice Translation” software by Translate Your World. American consumers are waiting to welcome you!  Attend live in Atlanta (click here for directions and parking) or watch from anywhere in the world.
