U.S. Expansion and Fundraising: A Comprehensive FAQ

For many high-growth UK/European tech and life sciences companies, U.S. expansion and fundraising are key steps in the journey. The U.S. offers the promise of massive commercial opportunities and plentiful capital, but doing business and raising money in an unfamiliar, highly competitive environment requires thoughtful advance planning and clinical execution.

Based on our discussions with UK/European startups and scaleups over the past decade, below are over two dozen frequently asked U.S. expansion and fundraising questions (with linked answers).

We intend to make this a living resource for the UK/European tech and life sciences communities and will update it as appropriate. If there are key questions you would like to see addressed here, feel free to send me suggestions at daniel.glazer@wsgr.com.
