How we work
Our simple and effective work structure provides you with an easy and comprehensive market strategy. We would start by discussing your business requirements in the UK and then draw up a work plan for you. After that:
For companies that are seeking partnership/ distribution in the UK, we will establish connections in the relevant industries and arrange business meetings/presentations with the potential partners, distributors and investors for you. Your company, product, technology and service information will be reviewed and translated into English if relevant. Our representatives in the UK will have meetings with – and give presentations to – potential business partners. We will liaise with the UK companies and help you negotiate with them during partnership and cooperation discussions. We will assist you with business meetings and trade missions to the UK.
For companies that wish to sell products in the UK, we can provide information on any relevant export regulations, and assist with setting up sales channels. We can help with trademark registration, intellectual property protection and brand establishment.
Once your new business venture is underway, we can provide copywriting services on UK social media to promote your company profile, build relationships and expand your business network across the region.
