Through decades of bringing innovative western technologies to East Asia’s largest corporations, we now have an unrivalled network of over 90,000 decision-makers at our fingertips.
We’ve delivered hundreds of business development initiatives in the region: from helping newcomers take their first steps, to boosting experienced international organisations; and from delivering stand-alone opportunity assessment projects to running long-term surrogate sales programs.
Acting as our clients’ on-the-ground commercial team in East Asia, we’ve closed licensing deals and forged strategic partnerships worth millions of dollars. For example: we helped a Finnish indoor location startup close a multi-million-dollar deal with Yahoo! Japan, and a UK fuel cell company sign a $60M joint development agreement with Doosan.
Our Research & Strategy service, delivered through our team of Asia-based market specialists, will analyse your opportunity and assess your options. Our people have the knowledge, experience and networks to swiftly determine whether your product is right for the market - and, if so, what your optimal strategy should be - or what policies you should implement to grow your exports or attract more inward investment. We combine desk research and meetings with influential stakeholders to generate the information you need to plan your expansion programme.
Our three-stage Surrogate Sales Program™, delivered by our teams based across East Asia, will give you an immediate market presence without the up-front costs of opening your own operation.
The current COVID-19 travel restrictions are no barrier to our sales activities because our people are based in Asia and so able to meet your target customers and partners, where necessary bringing you in via video conference to cement the deals.
