Based on the results the management and Wazzup’s stakeholders can make a decision and implement concrete follow-up actions.

The internationalisation scan executed by Business Boost International has shown us the most attractive markets. The focus for exports on two out of our six PMC’s a/o has helped us to grow our business from EUR 5,5 mln in 2013 (around break even) to EUR 8 mln (profitable) in 2014.
The size of the Dutch market is too small for our growth ambition. We thought opportunities would be present mostly in Eastern Europe, but it turned out that also Germany and the UK offer big chances for our business development. BB-Int has assisted me a/o to realise a cooperation with a Dutch company with complementary products. The report is very valuable to me and it provides concrete actions for the coming 3 years.

We have asked Business Boost International to identify potential distributors for our hand tool business. By choice we have not disclosed to them distributors already known to us. With their methodology BB-Int proved to be able to identify not only distributors known to us but also multiple others that are interesting and which we were not aware of. Convincingly it has been proven that the approach is right and effective!
