Frequently asked questions

What clients usually engage your International Market Entry 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 Market Entry talent to add on-demand and flexible resources, expertise, or staff to their in-house team.

How is Fintalent different?

Fintalent is not a staffing agency. We are a community of best-in-class International Market Entry professionals, highly specialized within their domains. We have streamlined the process of engaging the best International Market Entry talent and are able to provide clients with International Market Entry 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 Market Entry professionals, speak over 55 languages, and have professional experience in all geographical markets. Our International Market Entry 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 Market Entry consultants have experience in leading firms as well as interfacing with clients and wider corporate structures and management. What makes our International Market Entry 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 Market Entry 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 Market Entry consultant’s work?

During your initial engagement with a member of our Fintalent talent pool with no risk. If you are not satisfied with the quality of your hire for any reason then we are able to find a replacement at short notice. There is no minimum commitment per project, but generally projects last at least 5 days and can last 12+ months.

Everything you need to know about International Market Entry

International markets are worthwhile for a number of reasons, such as getting access to new customers, finding creative new opportunities, and even diversifying your product line through localization. Understanding these regulations before entering a foreign market can be the key to success or failure. For instance, Fintalent’s international market entry consultants observe that some countries have specific requirements for products that include age verification labels on certain products or recycling information on packaging.

In addition, some countries require manufacturers to follow strict product safety guidelines and regulations. In order to enter a foreign market, you’ll want to become familiar with the foreign government’s laws, including regulations that may apply to your products or services.
To get started in your research for potential overseas markets, evaluate the feasibility of entrance into a market through these six steps:

  1. Analyze how international trade is regulated in your target country. Find out the specific rules and regulations for importing goods, including any licensing or registration requirements that can be applied to your product or services. For example, the Department of Commerce has a publication that describes each country’s import practices (see References).
  2. Evaluate the macroeconomic climate of your target country. Consider the current economy, the rate of inflation, the currency exchange rate and potential shifts that may affect your market entry. In addition, examine employment rates, labor costs and any other factors that can affect your target country’s ability to purchase and use your product or service. International trade publications such as The Economist and The Financial Times regularly cover world financial news.
  3. Identify government-supported agencies that promote international trade in your target country. Use this information to learn about any government policies that may apply to foreign trade. For instance, the Office of Commercial Services under U.S Department of Commerce has a program called “Select USA” that helps with U.S.-based investment in foreign markets (see References).
  4. Research the country’s infrastructure, including communication and transportation. Investigate how effective these resources are, and how they might impact your ability to sell in your target market. Are there any laws governing the import or export of products or services? For example, is there a minimum value requirement for imported goods? The Department of Commerce has information on international trade and U.S.-international trade relations (see References).
  5. Evaluate the policies of your target market’s government towards foreign direct investment (FDI) and international businesses. Do you need a government-issued permit or license? Will you be subject to or exempt from local export procedures? Is single-sourcing of your product required or encouraged? Are your products safe as they are to be shipped throughout the world, and is there any sort of certification that must accompany them? (See References.)
  6. Evaluate the cost and time to enter your target market. Evaluate whether the additional costs and time involved in entering this market will be worthwhile for the business opportunity it presents. For instance, consider whether you can get an office opened quickly enough to take advantage of market opportunities in other countries with which you are unfamiliar. What is the cost of setting up a local office in the target country? Is there enough time to get involved in local market development?

Once you have completed these six steps, you should have a good understanding of how product registration, documentation and safety concerns can impact your product or service’s ability to enter a foreign market.
