Description

How to expand your business to Germany

The German market is one of the strongest in Europe and many London companies are considering it as a great place to expand their activities. There are many advantages: strong economy, geographically close, large number of clients and/or customers; but it also comes with challenges: decentralised territory, economy split between several major cities, regulation, and more broadly the culture of business.

On Tuesday 15th January, Philipp Westermeyer, founder of OMR, and Miriam Ducke, our London & Partners Chief Representative in Germany will be in London and will offer 2 hours of their time to answer any questions you may have on the German market.

We invite all companies looking at a potential German expansion in 2019 to join us for a informal but insightful Q&A session.


About Philipp Westermeyer

Philipp is founder and CEO of OMR. OMR is a platform for digital marketing. The heart and soul of the company is the OMR Festival, taking place annually in Hamburg. The festival consists of the Conference with top international speakers, the Expo of over 200 exhibitors, Masterclasses, Side Events, Parties and more.

Philipp will share advice on scaling a business, as well as insights into the German market. He has successfully sold 2 of his prior start-ups, Adyard and Metrigo, the latter of which was acquired by Zalando and evolved to become Zalando Media Solutions, the company's in-house digital marketing platform.
