"SOLUTIONS YOU DESIRE"
Coming to the USA?
Acting as agent for your commercial and industrial products that you wish to distribute in the USA.
Need advice with entering the US-market? Our services are broad and we do not charge for the initial information gathering consultation. Whether you are at the pre-launch stage, or considering expansion of existing US-based operations, let us know what your needs are.
Regional Site Selection
We help you find excellent sites for advanced manufacturing and distribution/warehousing in the Southeastern United States. As an independent advisor, our role is both to determine where such sites are available, and to help guide you in the transaction. Our goal is to include all important factors in the selection process. These factors include, but are not limited to:
- Proximity, and ease of access, to markets and suppliers
- Existing and trainable workforce
Independent Contractor for Inbound USA Physical Investments
We can act as your "man on the ground," working with third-party providers ranging from immigration, intellectual property, contract attorneys, accountants, commercial real estate brokers, financial institutions, architects, advertising and marketing agencies, public authorities and more. This service is provided on a retainer fee basis.
Overseas Business Attraction
Independent Contractor for Economic Development Organizations
This new service offering is designed to help existing, newly-created, or reorganized US-based Economic Development Organizations (including IDAs) that cannot yet support a full-time experienced international business attraction employee. The contracting organization covers all costs (economy-class travel, lodging, food, local transportation, etc), along with a "trip fee" for our highly customized service.
While pleased to assist any EDO regardless of location, our current knowledge and expertise is particularly well-suited for organizations located in Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia.
We will work with you, and an experienced external Lead Generation company selected by us with your final approval, to target and visit with overseas-based companies to professionally market your region. We will work with you to filter the prospects to meet your desired requirements in terms of location timing, probable investment amount, anticipated level of new employees, type of business, etc.
While not required, and when there are no special VISA requirements, 1-2 local economic development officers or support vendors are encouraged to accompany us (and learn the process) on these, typically one-week, prospecting missions. These are efficient and structured missions, normally with a Sunday arrival in the foreign location and a Friday night departure. We target 10-15 prospects per mission, but may include additional meetings with local support entities or attendance at a targeted trade show.
If desired, we can assist you in designing and producing simple, yet effective, marketing materials that beautifully capture your region's unique "product" to be used in conjunction with the prospecting mission.
your next step?
Allow us to discuss how we might be of assistance. Our service costs are much less than hiring another full time employee.
