How to enter a foreign market
Due to the pioneer nature of the business, LARALAB has planned to expand into other countries, starting with Italy. Hence, Mario Becherer decided to participate in the EYE program and go to Turin to work side by side with Luigi Tealdi, founder of the namesake legal services consultancy office, thus acquiring inside key knowledge of the Italian market and its financial and regulatory characteristics. Moreover, thanks to his Host Entrepreneur’s broad network and hands-on advice, Mario established new valuable business contacts, meeting even new clients.
After this successful three-month exchange, Mario returned to his team in Munich to work on the next step: conquering the CE mark.
