Do SaaS creators necessarily have to decide to go global at some point in their development?
Some experts are frank: to go from a start-up to a scale-up, you have to go global, at least to, for example, be in a giant market like the US or China. The digital world rarely confines itself to traditional land borders.
Even if an international strategy can be a source of new opportunities and new growth, it can also be risky. That’s why an international strategy is more adapted for companies that have reached a certain level of maturity and who are ready to throw themselves into a new phase of their professional activity. In their case, going global and expanding into new markets is a necessary step.
