Why to Work Together?:

For corporate and private equity investors, among other things, our specialty is that we coordinate, assist and/or manage their current and prospective investments in emerging markets, by aligning our interests with them as their glocal hands-on and unique investment partner in the country. Our main goal is to assist them in their post investment period by taking active hands-on roles at the board levels on behalf of them, with a professional approach towards their local partners. We work to eliminate the miscommunication and business issues starting from the pre investment period, which might potentially pose problems between the partners during the post investment period; or whenever during the life of their partnership.

For emerging market entrepreneurs, as their glocal hands-on and long-term partner, we work with them on the overall strategy for their companies, develop detailed business plans, identify required resources and funding needs going forward and prepare their companies to raise capital or partner with investors. We then assist them during the capital raising and/or M&A transactions, strategic business development efforts, setting-up corporate governance and reporting structures as well as international expansion projects.

We continue to work with them during the post-capital raising/partnership period to assist them during the life of the partnership.
