From local to global in one year
Going global is not about greed or just being crazy. Trying to go global fast is what every single Silicon Valley company gets injected by their investors every day. The World Innovations Forum Foundation founders team took three companies from zero to global. You can leverage this precious experience for your own expansion plans. Obviously you will want to be ready for that – yet, you never will :)
1) Readiness Check
Who knows whether you are really ready? We believe we have a good handle on what it takes. Some are more adventurous, others more careful. Yet, everybody has a window of opportunity. It isn’t only about you to be ready, it is also the market. And then there is fierce competition that may take a leap before you. Readiness is always a fragile position. We will help you explore basic readiness as well as risks and opportunities to assess your timeframe.
Obviously there is no guarantee – only risks, we help to mitigate as good as possible.
Fee: this is free for now
When ready we help prepare. Once you go, your competitors will follow. Timing is everything – also in the preparation itself. You will want to make the local markets aware of you. You will speak with many people to explore the current market conditions, look for partners, seek early customer, learn all about the local way of doing business. All that and more needs preparation. Equally important: You don’t want your current business to slip, but continue to grow.
Low cost expansion Most likely you don’t have deep pockets to go international. No young business has. We will help you optimize resources, foreign market entry campaigns and launches, country by country.
Fee: $2,500 for the first country, $750 for following countries as needed
We all will be with you – on every step of the way. Once you go, we will make introductions to the most relevant people for your particular business case. Ambassadors, local customers, corporations, community members, local officials and others will be available to help. We help you start marketing into the foreign countries you want to go and build the necessary support for the respective market.
You will be hiring people, start in a co-working space, but quickly move to your own offices because your inside sales team will be on the phone all day. You will build relationships with local partners, local sales channels, local implementers as needed, build a support organization, maybe produce locally. All that while you are growing your home business and soon businesses in other countries. You will want to make sure that you hire the best possible managers in each country as they will hire a like minded team.
Globally in every nation and every society, business is done between people – even if a fully automated shop is in between.
