We will build your business in North and South America

Intro

As European companies show traction in their domestic market, they look to scale overseas.

Countries sharing a border or a language are often the first port of call.

Germany, France and the UK are often the main targets for European companies.

The US remains the most attractive market for European companies looking to scale up

4 reasons why:

  • Big international market
  • Homogeneous market
  • Quick and big scale up opportunity
  • Possibility to significantly increase valuation

However, the US is difficult to access for the most early stage businesses. The marginal cost and effort is significant and the risks high

  • Go too early leads to a significant financial and time effort, a distraction from the core market and can lead to failure
  • Go too late and competition might have taken the US market
  • The Covid crisis has rendered scaling up in the US, with the traveling it entails, even more challenging
  • Most European companies won't take the step and won't have a US presence by the time they exit, missing out on growth, valuation, etc
