The Center for Emerging Technologies and Polsinelli invite you to join us for the next event in our 2013 Advance St. Louis series, featuring in-depth, comprehensive sessions on topics vital for entrepreneurs competing in highly aggressive technology industries.

Advance St. Louis presents: Doing Business in China, Part 1

Companies are realizing that the future of their business must be international in scope, and in particular Asia-focused. What are the challenges, rewards and issues with doing business in China? How do you successfully navigate China's bureaucracy, understand the laws regulating foreign companies operating in China, and perhaps most importantly, the culture? This program will feature an interactive discussion among our panelists of experienced China practitioners, who will explore the existing legal framework and potential pitfalls for businesses operating in China, and offer practical and honest advice about how to expand your organization's reach into China.
