Proven Methodologies & Tools

Our tried-and-tested methodology is available to all companies in our programs, equipping them for the best possible results.

Market Insights & Intelligence

Gain key insights and attend expert sessions on the different markets. The main focus of the program is to connect you with the right contacts in the target market, however, we also offer specialised support when needed on topics such as culture, communication, lead generation, sales, marketing, legal and corporate relationships. These sessions are tailored and available on a modular basis in order to provide each company in the program with every item they need for a successful market entry at the timing that suits you.

Learn from other Foreign Entrepreneurs

Get the “lessons learned”, “dos and don’ts” and the stuff the textbooks cannot teach you from the entrepreneurs who have entered the markets before you. Rainmaking Expand has a great circle of advisors and speakers who are ready to share their experiences. Sessions are provided on a 1:1 ad hoc basis and provide invaluable resources to all companies looking to expand.
