Thank you to those of you that subscribed and to our new readers. For those that missed the broader mission read it here
. One readers comment on the Inaugural Love Letter “I need more specifics”. So folks, though it is less romantic and the mystery is denied, below is what you can expect monthly from The Transatlantic Post:
- On the 28th day of each month in 2017, probably at a random mid-Atlantic time, I will provide an insider perspective on a different European city and its entrepreneurial ecosystem (where befitting, an occasional US city)
- Practical tips and advice from those who have grown their companies or are in the process of growing in the US
- US investor of the month based solely on experiences among our entrepreneurial friends for European companies thinking about expansion
- Highlighting roles for those looking to hire in the US or US companies hiring in Europe and everything in between
- A few surprises with a healthy dose of British humour, witty banter, and cultural missives. Emojis are still off the table but could be persuaded.
As Google's Eric Schmidt saluted Swiss engineering talent and opened its largest R&D centre outside of the US in Zurich, I had the pleasure of speaking to a cross-section of people embedded in the city’s entrepreneurial ecosystem. From exploring Digital Switzerland’s new initiatives to speaking with local entrepreneurs, we exchanged notes on robot-o-pocalypses, how the entrepreneurial ecosystem is evolving and where the opportunities lie in the next 3–5 years.
We’ve also included a small dose from Peter Freedman. Peter is a seasoned journalist with far posher English than most and is also a marketing maven. He explains his top 5 marketing tips for those planning a US launch. Coincidentally, he just wrote a piece on Emojis that went viral.
In closing from the snow-capped mountains of Switzerland, with Trump now officially sworn in as President, I can attest to Swiss Schoggliweggli providing much needed catharsis. And also to those crowd numbers in 2009, no fake news there — some reflections from attending Obama’s inauguration eight years ago when I first landed in New York.
Until your love letter N°3.. (subscribe below to get it first)
Sincerely, yours, Kajal
