What is our business model?
Custom Market research is available on a fixed price basis > Packages
According to Bloomberg, 8 out of 10 entrepreneurs who start businesses fail within the first 18 months. So do enterprises that rush into Germany without diligent preparation. You don´t want to be among the 80%!
You want to invest as little as necessary but as much as needed – and we will help you to find this sweet spot.
How does Sembassy compare to other alternatives
If your business can´t be run globally on an app store and some smart media buys, you need to familiarize yourself with markets, that come with different cultures and buying patterns. Europe – or better the European Union comes with massive buying power but 28 (maybe soon 27) countries and you shouldn´t rely on the idea, that the most familiar nationality is still the ideal entry point.
So, how to find out, what´s going on? Here are common ways, to find out:
Send a team and build operations from the scratch.
Buy a company, that comes with a team, customers, and processes.
Hire a full time expert, who is willing to build and run the organization.
Contract an independent party to plan, build, and run the show.
