    The New York Scottish Challenge

    The US is Scotland’s largest export market and one which offers rich opportunities for Scottish businesses. But it is also a large, complex, and expensive market to enter unless you have a well-developed plan.


    To optimise your opportunities for success the team at Scottish Business Network has developed a five-week program to support you.


    The first four weeks are spent in preparation where you will be guided by successful Scots based in the US and UK to develop a market entry plan for your business. Uniquely this will also include introductions to potential customers, partners and investors based in New York.


    The program then transfers to New York where you will be lined up with high-value face-to-face meetings, and group sessions and have the opportunity to participate in a range of events in the city.


    To end the program you will change the Scottish Business Network team as we march in the 25th Anniversary Tartan Day Parade.

    Those joining us on the NYSC program will experience the full breadth of value delivered by the SBN community
