What clients usually engage your International Expansion Consultants?

We work with clients from all over the world. Our clients range from enterprise and corporate clients to companies that are backed by Private Equity or Venture Capital funds. Furthermore, we work directly with Family Offices, Private Equity firms, and Asset Managers. Most of our enterprise clients have dedicated Corporate Development, M&A, and Strategy divisions which are utilizing our pool of International Expansion talent to add on-demand and flexible resources, expertise, or staff to their in-house team.

How is Fintalent different?

We have streamlined the process of engaging the best International Expansion talent and are able to provide clients with International Expansion professionals within 48 hours of first engaging them. We believe that our platform provides more value for Corporates, Ventures, Private Equity and Venture Capital firms, and Family Offices.

Our Hiring Process – What do ‘Community-Approach’ and ‘Invite-to-Apply’ mean?

‘Invite-to-Apply’ is the process by which we shortlist candidates for the majority of projects on our platform. Often, due to the confidential nature of our clients’ projects, we do not release projects to our whole platform but using the matching technology and expertise of our internal team we select candidates who are the best fit for our clients’ needs. This approach also ensures engagement with our community of professionals on the Fintalent platform, and is a benefit both to our clients and independent professionals, as our freelancers have direct access to the roles best suited to their skills and are more likely to take an interest in a project if they have been sought out directly. In addition, if a member of our community is unavailable for a project but knows someone whose skill set perfectly fits the brief, they are able to invite them to apply for the role, utilizing the personal networks of each talent on our platform.

Which skills and expertise do your Fintalents have?

The Fintalents are hand-picked and vetted International Expansion professionals, speak over 55 languages, and have professional experience in all geographical markets. Our International Expansion consultants’ experience ranges from 3+ years as analysts at top investment banks and Strategy consultancies, to later career C-level executives. The average working experience is 6.9 years and 80% of all Fintalents range from 3-12 years into their careers.

Our International Expansion consultants have experience in leading firms as well as interfacing with clients and wider corporate structures and management. What makes our International Expansion talent pool stand out is the fact that they have technical backgrounds in over 2,900 industries.

How does the screening and onboarding of your International Expansion talent work?

Fintalent.io is an invite-only platform and we believe in the power of referrals and a closed-loop community. Members of our community are able to invite a small number of professionals onto the platform. In addition, our team actively scouts for the best talent who have experience in investment banking or have worked at a global top management consultancy. All of our community-referred talent and scouted talent are subject to a rigorous screening process. As such, over the last 18 months totaling more than 750 hours of onboarding calls, of which only 40% have received an invite-link after the call.

What happens if I am not satisfied with my International Expansion consultant’s work?

During your initial engagement with a member of our Fintalent talent pool with no risk.

Everything you need to know about International Expansion

What is International Expansion?

International expansion is the practice of expanding a business outside of its original domestic market. International expansion as observed by Fintalent’s international expansion consultants, often requires significant capital and manpower, while creating new markets has benefits in terms of customer reach and revenue growth.

In addition to the cost and effort, international expansion becomes a marketing challenge as it can present unique challenges for companies to reach a larger customer base with products or services that are unique to their region. Overcoming these challenges can help launch a company on an international path by capturing more market share, increasing revenue growth, or diversifying their offerings for customers worldwide.

International expansion in business is critical for any company. The global economy has seen massive growth, with over 240 million people living outside of their own country in 2015. This presents significant opportunity for multinational companies and makes international business an essential part of any company’s strategic plan. However, these opportunities also come with new challenges such as cultural barriers and language barriers to overcome before making a successful global move.

The rewards of international expansion can provide a company with multiple streams of profits; however, these benefits must be balanced with the risk involved. For example, global expansion is often more expensive than domestic growth and can result in reduced profits. On the other hand, global expansion opens the door to new markets where virtually any niche can be filled. An affordable product for an untapped market represents a potential gold mine for many companies.

International business is particularly vital for those companies that plan on expanding into foreign countries with completely different cultures and languages. This will help expand your reach across social media and marketing channels while providing better customer service to people around the world.

The globalization of companies and general international business expansion is increasing at a steady rate. Many different types of jobs and careers are opening up for international companies to transfer jobs overseas or to bring in employees from around the world.

International companies are usually involved in full or part ownership of overseas goods or services, joint ventures with foreign firms, subcontracts with local companies and export-import operations.

An international business network helps you to expand your business by tapping into new markets and sources of labor, as well as providing incentives for building relationships with your customers, vendors and competitors. When up against competition on multiple fronts and resources are limited, an international business network can be crucial to success.

In the international business field, the most common type of business is a subsidiary. This is defined as a privately owned business that is part of a larger corporation and primarily has operations in one nation. This subsidiary must operate with the same resources and goals as any other branch or division of the larger corporation. The drawback to this type of company is that it may seem less proactive than its independent counterpart. Also, this kind of company often has to follow strict policies that the larger corporation has set out.

In an independent firm, there are no ties to another company or corporation and it operates primarily in one country. This type of company generally has less diversification because it depends only on one market and one source of labor. While this may pose a risk to the company, it can also allow for more freedom and control over its goals.

The key factor in choosing between a subsidiary or independent firm is how much risk a company is willing to take. If the business operates independently, then it must invest in more resources and capital to be successful, but if things go wrong it will only affect that branch of the company rather than all branches as in a subsidiary situation. This means that both business models have their advantages and disadvantages as well as areas which need careful consideration before choosing between them.

Hiring a foreign employee can be a large cost to a company, but it can also be a great source of profit. This is because to hire an employee the company must pay for their airfare, food and housing as well as salaries. With the right candidate, this expense may make or break your business depending on how much is spent on hiring and whether they are worth that price.
