Progressive helps organisations unlock and commercialise new growth opportunities more rapidly than their competition and more effectively than traditional innovation programmes.

The Catalysts Podcast focuses on the key benefits of corporates and startups working together and how these partnerships can become a catalyst for change for the future. In each episode we will discuss a key topic area behind these partnerships with either a startup or a senior corporate stakeholder.

In today’s episode, we address the area of international expansion, with a special focus on expansion to the US. There are already numerous podcasts out there that focus on the financial side of expansion, but this episode focuses  on the not so ‘discussed’ area of the culture aspects that have to considered when looking to move into other markets. To help me in this quest, I am really pleased to have as our guest Dan Glazer, who is London Office Managing Partner at Wilson Sonsini, the premier provider of legal services to European companies who want to expand their business to the US.  We discuss many subjects including; the differing corporate cultures across America, how America has a different view of the working week and key considerations when pitching for new business in America.
