For companies at market entry stage, the most important decisions to make are about which countries to target, based on a series of criteria including access to skills and business regulation. But the impact of moving people to work in a different country should not be overlooked.

Want to know what to consider before expanding for the first time? Here are our key takeaways:

  • Make sure you know all the ins and outs of a new country before entering into an international venture
  • Consider all practicalities of operating in a new country
  • Make yourself aware of local regulations
  • Development and foreign investment agencies are there to help you understand the local business climate
  • Consider working in a shared office space at the start
