For many information technology start-ups, penetration into Asian markets is a critical element of their business plans. At Globespan, we help our portfolio companies with global ambitions achieve this significant milestone with the assistance of our Asian Business Development program.
Asia is attractive to early stage companies because it opens up new and substantial sources of revenue, offers exposure to innovative technologies, and provides access to key suppliers and engineering resources. We also know first-hand from many years of experience in Japan, Korea and the other Asian markets that these opportunities come with considerable obstacles – language and cultural norms, distance and logistics, and limited personnel and other resources typical of early stage companies.
Globespan has the infrastructure, network and process to help our portfolio companies enter and navigate these global markets. We believe that this distinct set of capabilities and resources is unmatched in the marketplace.
“I wanted to personally acknowledge that your ABD Team was an invaluable resource in helping us consummate this transaction –both in helping us navigate the numerous issues that came up and by providing local support for us in Japan to help drive closure.”
