The value calculator of hiring a local go-to-market specialist

Why does it pay to work with a go-to-market specialist?  The Value Calculator is measuring the strategical impact and financial benefits of working with an independent local go-to-market expert.

The go-to-market challenge in a nutshell

Assuming, your company is based in the USA and has decided to go-to-market in the Digital Single Market of the European Union, you would think about the way you plan and support this ambition.

You know, that Germany like France and Italy and at least in 2018 the UK is part of the European Union, but somehow different than the 20 other local markets.

Your company cannot be sure if they know all the critical market patterns and obstacles. They can´t be sure that the individuals and organizations they talk to give them unbiased feedback.

Startup Verkauf
  1. You need a framework to support decentral ambition. 
  2. You need insights about individual local target markets

What makes a local go-to-market specialist special?

A local specialist must be designed to serve the ambition. In our case an international tech firm, going after the European market potential with a connected service; especially in the early stage. 

The ideal candidate has an own corporate infrastructure but gives you access to potential local customers & partners and service providers. The ideal candidate must not be exposed to hidden interest and should be able to align his business model. He should be able to „start lean“ but „scale fast“, using service platforms and automation.
