Innovative markets move quickly. Keep up, while maintaining a firm grip on your IP. When expanding your European business into North America, there are a number of options for protecting your intellectual property in the United States.
You've worked hard to develop an innovative idea. The last thing you want is for someone else to steal your intellectual property or take credit for it themselves, whether it is your brand, an invention, a design, or any other creation. When expanding your European business into North America, ...

There are plenty of attractive and affordable cities that boast tons of tech talent and even have direct flights to and from Paris-CDG. Here are just a few of the stand-outs.
Congratulations! You're ready to establish the North American headquarters of your Europe-based business! But what city should you choose? Silicon Valley is a natural choice. It's filled with startups, but it's SO EXPENSIVE! The same is can be said about New York City.

"The way you communicate to your customers is a direct extension of your brand. Think of it as your brand's personality. Or rather, its voice.

Ideally, your company's style guide should define how to express voice, in all your company's languages, so that your message is consistent. This encompasses product marketing webpages, error messages, email correspondence, terms and conditions, and more. EVERY piece of written text produced by your company."

"Subtle mistakes in writing quality can undermine the strength of your message. Readers naturally develop trust in companies whose technical documentation is rock solid. Likewise, they question the value of a company’s product when its technical documentation is poorly written or poorly translated."
The purpose of technical communication is to instruct and explain. Understandably then, accuracy is paramount. Yet subtle mistakes in writing quality can undermine the strength of your message. Readers naturally develop trust in companies whose technical documentation is rock solid.

"The true test is whether consumers actually wear the devices as they were designed."
We've witnessed some very high profile product launches in recent years, touting the next big thing in wearable tech. Yet time and again, they've failed to catch on among consumers. Wearable tech seems like the next logical step for our digital-minded society. So why do they amount to little ...

"On this date in 1940, Howard Florey and Ernst Chain of the University of Oxford injected eight lab mice with lethal doses of streptococci bacteria. They then administered penicillin to four of those mice. The next day, the four mice that received penicillin were healthy. The other four were dead."

"We give very little thought these days to picking up a phone and calling anywhere in the world. Or texting. Or snapchatting. We are immensely connected to one another, a reality that has had monumental implications on our societies, economies, and more.

The world was entirely different just 140 years ago, when Alexander Graham Bell made the first ever telephone call to his assistant Thomas A. Watson, who was in the next room. (Couldn't he just get up and walk over to his desk?!)"

"When we think of Neanderthals, we think of primitive grunting cavemen who died out against the intellectually superior homo sapiens (us). Neanderthals were such… Neanderthals!

Or were they?? Evidence discovered in recent years suggests that Neanderthals may have had complex language after all, far from the grunts we give them credit for."
In the early 2000s, the Human Genome Project was making headlines, with its ambitious endeavor to map the individual genes that make up the human genome. Geneticist J. Craig Venter, one of the driving forces behind the Human Genome Project, delivered the commencement speech at Georgetown ...

"Silicon Valley is now such the center of gravity in so many industries, there is no alternative for local players but to learn English, negotiate with American entities, comply with the American way of doing business, and ultimately convert their whole communications, both external and internal, into some version of the English language. Most Entrepreneurs trying to grow their digital startup at an international level have gone through that experience. This is a game that some will win, but many more will lose."
There’s a hidden factor behind how power is distributed in the digital economy, and it’s the English language.

"You wouldn’t knowingly release buggy software, so don’t risk putting out buggy content."
You've invested countless hours into your product offering. A bug fix here, a new feature there, a tutorial to bring new users up to speed. Planning. Testing. Feedback. Finetuning. Clearly, your value proposition should extend to your entire client base, regardless of their language.
