“NYC can seem scary especially in the Finance world. It is friendlier than you think – but you need to take the time to understand it.” David, enteruptors. https://www.fdglobal.com.au/case-study-enteruptors-expands-usa-fd-global/

“If anyone is considering expanding into the US, then I cannot recommend strongly enough to get involved in the NYC Immersion Program and get to the US sooner rather than later.  It is only with the depth of knowledge and understanding of the US market and how to engage with it that you will then be able to ensure that your value proposition is right and generates the sort of response you could only dream of. Thank you so much Trena.” Alex, HFCM https://www.fdglobal.com.au/startup-lessons-us/
