The International Business Accelerator is a structured coaching and consulting program that helps small and medium businesses to speed up and de-risk their entry into international markets.
We built it because we believe that there has never been a better time to go global, and that smaller companies deserve the opportunity to be internationally successful. We know that doing business internationally is easier than ever before, and international trade is at an all-time high.
We empower businesses to amplify their impact by winning more clients, making more money, and creating a greater positive influence in the lives of their customers, staff and suppliers. We do this by providing:
We help business owners build and implement a winning strategy for their international expansion.
We provide the clarity and focus to turn a complex project into a streamlined, manageable process.
We help generate and maintain momentum to see the project through and get the international business turning a profit.
What can you expect from the program?
The IBA is an action-oriented program, geared towards helping you to achieve key milestones as you progress throughout the program. By the end of the program, you should be:
- Ready to enter a new market
- Sure that you have chosen the right market
- Confident that your product or service will work in that market
- Prepared to meet customer expectations in the new market
- Equipped to deal with the cultural nuances of the target market
- Up-to-date on the regulatory framework of the target market
- Prepared to implement a carefully designed international strategy
How does it work?
The IBA is delivered entirely online, so you can literally do it from anywhere in the world. All you need is a good internet connection, a phone, tablet or laptop with a camera and a global mindset.
Each month we run a workshop featuring an international expert who will take you through key areas and provide firsthand insights into what works (and what doesn’t) in an international context.
After the workshop, you’ll meet for a 1:1 session with your coach to test ideas, get feedback and work through any challenges you face as you internationalise.
We pair you with an accountability buddy - another business leader who is expanding internationally - for you to bounce ideas off, and to keep you accountable for your progress throughout the program.
