Local to Global Business

From Local to Global Business - Sticks'n'Sushi

The first in the series of event's called  'From Local to Global Business', in which we introduce Danish linked Businesses  that have made it to London and are heading global. The aim is for our members to meet new members and to have informal chats with the founders and getting enlightenment from their experiences.

Yesterday's Event, co-orginized with the Danish UK Chamber of Commerce, was about the experiences that Kim Rahbek, the co founder of Sticks'n'Sushi, made when bringing his business to the UK and now going global.

The event had more than 40 participants, we started out with a welcome drink, a brief introduction to social networking - the essence of the Danish Club by Linda Senya (Danish Club Committee),  followed by a sit down dinner and finally the about 2 hours of one on one's with Kim Rahbek for all the participants.

Keep an eye on the Events calendar, for the next of this sort of events.

See you soon
