Andrew Anker advice: Go global

Andrew Anker: “… The earlier stage web companies I’m speaking with are thinking of a global footprint as a must-have, not a nice-to-have. Or maybe more appropriately, not even thinking of the international thing as anything particularly special. The Internet has so lowered the barriers to info-trade that Europe and Asia are just a few more hops away.”
Anker asks ‘How quickly should a Silicon Valley start-up move from only focusing on the domestic U.S. market to thinking about a move abroad?” His conclusion: smart companies ” globalize for product development from the very beginning.”
