Go-To-Market Strategy

Doing business in the U.S. means more than just opening a new sales office. The huge potential of the U.S. market comes with associated risk due to fierce competition and high costs of entry. Therefore, before entering the U.S. market, it is imperative that the business strategy is well defined and supported by real, primary data.

French Tech Hub US Market Entry program is perfectly designed to ensure a successful launch in the U.S. We use a methodology based on a step-by-step approach that provides the critical information entrepreneurs should know before making any market entry decisions:

What’s the size of my market? Who are my high-priority prospects? What is my company’s unique value proposition and market differentiation? Is my business model adapted to the U.S.? What sales model should I choose? Which channels?

Our methodology is based on three pillars:

Market positioning and value proposition based on market research, analysis and interviews with Key Opinion Leaders
Market validation with potential buyers: on-site, executive meetings in the U.S.
Go-To-Market Strategy: summary report defining the best way for your specific business to enter and grow in the U.S.

French Tech Hub has extensive experience across all tech industries – especially three main practices that leverage the knowledge of our U.S.-based industry experts: Digital & Cloud, Healthcare and Optics & Hardware.
