Cultural Capital: Knowing local business culture

This summer, I had my first encounter with local business culture.  Scheduling my sales and promotional activities for the month of August (i know now…) wasn’t the best move.  I should have known that people here and in the rest of Europe, take their vacation season seriously!

As entrepreneurs, aside from knowing the market, we should also get to know how business is done. Being aware of local business culture can help boost business or even provide a new business opportunity.

Have you learned any local business culture through experience? We would love to hear some.

Here are tips from around the web on business culture in Europe.
