Sembassy - Frequently Asked Questions

About sembassy, what we do, and how to work with us

Why Sembassy?

You want to make sure that your business concept is successful before massive investments

We will help you to acquire customers, build a local presence and head for market leadership.

We are best for an early-stage mobile business, which is rapidly expanding activity in Germany.

Why now?

Because time to market is crucial and your need to prepare yourself while there is still time

What is Local Market Intelligence?

There is no shortage of inbound platforms or execs who were successful in their developed market. But all of that means nothing if you are trying to establish an innovative business concept in a new market with own rules and actors.

How do we compare ourselves to other alternatives

Let´s use the NABC-method by the Stanford Research Institute and compare these alternatives:

  1. Send a team and build operations from the scratch.
  2. Buy a company, that already comes with a team, customers, and processes.
  3. Hire a full time expert, who is willing to build and run the organization.
  4. Contract an independent party to plan, build, and run the show.

How does it pay to work with us?

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.

What is Sembassy´s business model?

For “target market analysis” – we offer services on a fixed price basis – X-RAY packages

For go-to-market engagement – we are open for either equity or success based compensation.

If you are a startup, with a brilliant idea but limited cash-flow, we can include phantom shares.
