MEGAPORT CEO VINCENT ENGLISH ON GLOBAL EXPANSION AND HOW TO SCALE UP A BUSINESS
THE RAPID expansion of Megaport (ASX: MP1) continues with the Brisbane-based company announcing a major partnership deal with US-based giant Oracle which will allow its customers to access its network across North America, Europe and Asia Pacific.
