IBS Italia – International Business Strategy is a strategic consulting firm specialized in services aimed at facilitating the internationalization of foreign businesses that would like to establish themselves in the foreign markets. Although we serve many clients that differ from one another in terms of the size and market they operate in, our expertise is mainly requested from small and medium sized businesses wanting to exploit the benefits of the global market in order to successfully compete abroad.
Founded in 2004, IBS Italia offers a vast range of services, which enables the company to fully assist both businesses and private citizens throughout the whole internationalization process. IBS Italia offers a complete 360 degree professional assistance in order to face all of the issues that may arise when setting up a business abroad.
Our process starts with a preliminary analysis of the risks and opportunities posed by the market of interest, which we carefully handpick after having completed extensive market research, pre-feasibility and feasibility studies, discovered potential foreign partners and carried out several on-site missions.
Once we have outlined the strategy we intend to pursue, we move on to assess what the best tools to finance our project would be. Moreover, one of our experts will provide export management related services in order to completely support the entire process of internationalization.
Expanding your own operational limitations, growing and competing are all imperatives all businesses should abide by if they want to earn a substantial competitive advantage in the current global economic marketplace.
Sticking to the regular export strategies is no longer enough for a business to overcome its competitors. Implementing direct-access strategies is now key to gain a competitive advantage as it allows businesses to exploit the benefits of operating in a decentralized environment and market where both production and personnel costs are lower and where bureaucracy and taxation are significantly reduced and more flexible.
IBS North America aims at facilitating the growth of small and medium sized businesses in the international marketplace by putting into action a systemic strategy that enables them to take advantage of the opportunities the global market provides while at the same time minimizing risks.
In order to ensure the best strategic support possible, we have built an extensive network of company offices positioned in some of the most important global markets, which throughout the years, have been collaborating alongside our main Italian offices in Rome, Milan, and Naples.
Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo, New York, Miami, Sofia, Doha, Singapore; these are some of the cities where IBS has established itself with operative offices and specialized personnel that can rely on a solid network of foreign institutions with which we collaborate on a daily basis.
THE INTERNATIONALIZATION PROCESS OF A BUSINESS IS NOT ONE THAT CAN BE CONDUCTED FROM OVERSEAS, BUT RATHER ONE THAT NEEDS TO BE INITIATED AND CARRIED TO COMPLETION DIRECTLY IN THE MARKET WHERE THE BUSINESS WANTS TO OPERATE IN.
