Learn how to weather business risks when growing your startup south of the border.

About this Event

The U.S. represents one fifth of the global economy and it remains Canadian entrepreneurs’ top choice when going global. With a new American administration coming to power and the pandemic still raging, business owners need to consider and mitigate new risks when expanding south of the border.

This February 3, MaRS invites you to a special webinar on planning for U.S. expansion and assessing the potential impacts of such a move for 2021 and beyond.

The session covers:

  • Where and how to set up a subsidiary in the U.S.
  • How U.S. taxes impact your entry and operations
  • How you can save money and bring more profits back to Canada
  • Resources to help build your expansion strategy
