Developers: Take the World Stage by Storm

#sxsw #ReadyToPay

With the pace of globalization today, international expansion is not something that can be put off until later in a startup’s life. Join John Lunn, Global Director of the PayPal Developer Network to learn how to take your company global, and fast. It's been said: “If you don’t clone yourself abroad, someone else will,” a reference to the Samwer Brothers’ Clone Factory, which has replicated companies like Groupon, Pinterest, and even Amazon. Still, startups face serious challenges when they move into foreign markets; one of the most significant, dealing with payments. How do you get paid across countries with varying financial rules, payment regulations and currencies? Drawing from his own experiences with myriad leading startups and developers, John will share how companies can successfully fend off competitors and take the world stage.
