Practical Guidelines for German Technology Companies (2nd Edition)
After the huge success of the first edition of our Go West Guide, and in response to multiple requests from the German tech community, we have launched an updated and expanded version of our Go West Guide to help German founders understand and navigate the U.S. market. This edition features articles with practical tips and legal considerations based on years of experience counselling high-growth companies in the U.S., Germany and worldwide on current topics such as:
U.S. Venture Financing for German Tech Companies
U.S. Market Expansion Projects
As one of the top tech law firms in the world, we are particularly committed to bringing the United States and German entrepreneurship communities closer together. We especially want to increase the attractiveness of German technology companies for American investors and ultimately grow/scale in the U.S. market. To that end, throughout this Guide we give helpful tips to founders and early stage investors of a German technology company to maintain its financeability and attractiveness for potential later-stage American investors.
In preparing this Guide, our international and cross-functional Orrick team drew on experience representing more than 1,800 tech companies globally, as well as the world’s leading venture and private equity investors. Founded in the Bay Area, Orrick is one of the world’s leading technology law firms, and ranks #1 for European venture capital transactions (PitchBook).
