Outsourcing

We supply clients with market studies who have plans for off-shoring or outsourcing of services, products and manufacturing. We delve into determining the best locations for sourcing based on existing supply chain needs, labor law practices and associated costs in mobilizing into that area. We identify potential joint venture partners, distributors and offer advice on decisions to invest directly or contract with local suppliers, and on how to best structure agreements for leases, equipment purchases, labor and financing.

Branding

We create marketing strategies to make sure you offer the right proposition to the right people.

We work as a strategic business partner with you to help identify investor opportunities, build relationships and create an actionable plan.

Small Business

It’s a small world; even small businesses must think globally and compete intelligently and aggressively. Small business owners need to think outside the box, think differently and act boldly, if not, someone else will beat them to it and opportunities will be lost and the business will suffer. We help small businesses get to that next level. We focus our clients, helping them become more competitive and profitable in their business by utilizing sales and marketing development expertise and experienced hands-on management consulting. Our approach will develop accountability through plans that can be put into action and are designed to achieve business objectives so that clients can get ahead of competition.
