For many technology-intensive start-ups, the addressable market includes not only the US but a set of high-growth consumer markets around the world.  Yet start-ups face a steep learning curve when going global that includes a lack of market knowledge, poor planning, and insufficient leveraging of resources. The result can often lead to missed opportunities that are critical to growth or misguided strategies that are ill-conceived, badly executed and costly. 

Start-ups need to create an institutional and executive environment that constantly learns, pivots and engages with global opportunities.  To get it right, we offer entrepreneurs and managers a unique perspective on accelerating growth and mitigating risk in some the world's most rewarding but challenging markets through access to ideas, entry strategies, capital, networks, business development and research expertise.
