Expanding your business internationally is time consuming and demanding. It requires multi-disciplinary skills in commerce, legislation and logistics, but also creates cultural and linguistic challenges. Therefore we recommend working with the right people and make a feasible plan: The higher your ambition, the stronger the impact on your financial and human resources.

In our experience the specific need and level of experience varies much from one company to the other. Market entry is not an exact science and export advice has to be tailored according to the specific challenges an exporter faces. However, the process towards international success is usually the same. To make it easy, we have summarized this process in our R-A-P-I-D approach:

  • READY: Is your product ready for other markets? And are you?
  • ABSORB: Collect as much relevant information as possible.
  • PRIORITIZE: Use your market intelligence to prioritize your markets and actions.
  • INTERACT: Visit your market, select your partners and interact with your customer.
  • DEVELOP: Create a strategy and form a strong team to achieve your commercial goals.

Every aspect of market entry is integrated in our service. We help your company to prepare, find the right information, select your market, create a strategy and, if needed, help you develop a new market.
