"The American software industry enjoys a domestic market representing close to 40% of global demand for software related products and services," says Hans Peter Bech, the workshop facilitator. "The biggest domestic market in Europe (Germany) represents only 5,7% and the smallest (Iceland) 0,02%. European software companies must learn to expand internationally very early in their life cycle otherwise they will be run over by their North American competitors."
The European market is extremely fragmented with different cultures, individual languages, and differences in local legislation and industry infrastructure and thus major variations in market requirements. European businesses have traditionally been excellent in mastering these differences. However the innovation speed in the software industry requires an acceleration of the learning curve. Software companies must expand much earlier in their life cycle, much faster, with less funding and without making major mistakes. This workshop is one in a series of workshops where European software executives discuss international growth best practise and build personal, international networks at the same time.
