Thu, 18th Sept - 2.00pm - 2.50pm

Room 3, Web2Open @ Web 2.0 Expo, Javits Center

Two nations separated by a common language? Perhaps, but fortunately this doesn't apply to e-commerce, social neworks and a host of Web 2.0 business models. The European market with over 500 million citizens is a huge market, and the UK is the natural first-step. After all we do share (pretty much) the same language.

This session is an opportunity to debate the similarities and differences between the UK/Europe's digital sector and the US at this Web2Open session. Find out what it's like to do business in the UK, discover the challenges and opportunities. The panel will comrpise some of the UK's hottest start-ups, a representative from UK Trade & Investment (part of the UK government) and others. Register for an "Expo" pass with the code "webny08opn".


The event is organised at part of the Digital Mission (http://digital-mission.org) which consists of 21 of the most innovative digital SMEs from the UK. Digital Mission is organised by digital media community Chinwag (http://chinwag.com)in conjunction with the UK Trade & Investment, Winston & Strawn and Sun Startup Essentials.

We have a number of events happening around the Digital Mission in New York from 15th - 19th September 2008, to find out more, please see:
