International Partner Search

The International Partner Search (IPS) is designed to help companies explore foreign markets and find local partners. Specifically, the IPS will identify prescreened overseas agents, distributors, manufacturer’s representatives, joint venture partners, licensees, franchisees, or strategic partners. The number of contacts depends upon market potential, but on average we will identify 5 contacts.

An IPS report includes the names and addresses, including e-mail and/or web site addresses, of prospective overseas companies or representatives, and the name and title of the key contact person(s) at each overseas company and their telephone number, fax and email addresses.
