Foreign Direct Investment & UK Market Entry

80% of Companies Fail in Market Entry

A wealth of statistics show that companies that expand their business internationally significantly outperform companies that do not and yet a move into a new market is a risky journey.

Four out of five companies fail in market entry 1 with failure rates even higher for SMEs. Despite this, little help is available that is cost-accessible and practically focused to help them navigate successfully through the market entry process.

We wanted to change this and provide cost-effective, comprehensive, action orientated support for SMEs that helps them accelerate towards sales and profits in new markets, whilst minimising the risks.

Trade Horizons Offers The Solution

All of our Directors have extensive experience of market entry across the world and have worked for large multinational companies, as well as small entrepreneurial companies that they have developed and run themselves.

They understand fully the pressures on SME companies to seek additional incomes by expanding to new markets to fulfil business objectives, and the many risks and challenges that such an exercise entails.

All of our Client Directors, Delivery Partners, Associates and Specialist Market Experts meet the Trade Horizons criteria of being able to offer our clients a complete range of market entry services.
