CLIENTS AND INDUSTRIES
Clients are possibly headquartered
in various parts of the world, but have in principal at least international
intentions of growing into or within Europe.
Clients can for example be small
and medium sized enterprises with innovative solutions either initializing or
extending their international presence, but bigger companies temporary lacking
capacity and expertise for their activities can also be supported.
Projects can also be provided
through different types of organizations from governmental, trade and promotion
organizations and the consulting sector.
The industries covered are multiple and include among others construction, logistics, machinery, environmental solutions, energy and also business services of different kinds.
THE PRIMARY MARKETS
The Netherlands and Belgium both represent significant economies with above average business friendly environments and strategic locations in Europe.
Sweden, located in the middle of Scandinavia is the biggest economy there.
France is simply one of the biggest economies in Europe.
Selected geographical markets potentially offer lots of opportunities for business development activities.
In order to execute the project work Market Explorer might either implement the plan using own means or in some cases use subcontractors. The use of subcontractors is for example applicable in case of a need for additional capacity, competence and expertise in a particular industry or geographical market.
The ambition is to fully cover Western Europe with a network of reliable
and qualitative partners.
We partner with various organizations, also outside Europe in order to bring a worldwide network of resources to help with your international expansion.
