offer a complete set of services targeted at companies that grow their
business and expand abroad, addressing three of their most pressing issues:
get customers, get funding, get going. These services enable our clients
to execute their business expansion successfully and achieve market entry
and sustainable development and growth.
We provide practical hands-on support to the entrepreneur, delivered
by professionals with proven track records in each of their respective
fields of expertise:
Get Customers -- Business and Channel Development
We support our clients in planning and preparing market entry and business
development in their target markets and developing the required sales
collateral. We then target prospects, make customer introductions and
provide direct pre-sales and sales support, presenting value propositions
and preparing client proposals, and assist our clients in contract negotiations
until deal closure. We also develop and execute channel strategies and
build partnerships for indirect sales and service delivery.
Get Funding -- Investment Readiness and Fundraising Support
In many cases, growth and international expansion needs to be preceded
by a funding round in the company’s home or target market. We help
clients in the development of their funding roadmap, identification of
potential capital sources and creation of the financial package to become
investment ready. We then support our clients during the fundraising road
show and term sheet negotiation.
Get Going -- Support Services, Business Execution & Governance
We connect our clients with professional service firms in new target markets
for soft-landing, administrative and legal support and back-office operations.
We also help our clients in establishing their teams and putting in place
appropriate governance structures.
The underlying driver when delivering our services is to help the entrepreneur
achieve market entry and growth while gaining efficiencies so that the
funds go to developing product and closing revenue.
We understand that no two opportunities are the same. Therefore, our approach
is highly tailored to each individual company’s specific situation
and needs. To find out more on the four40 approach,
