Market Entry Research
Businesses today are increasingly operating internationally as they seek growth opportunities, new partnerships, and expanded clientele in emerging and frontier markets. But without the right risk mitigation strategies, the volatile political, social, economic, and regulatory environments associated with these markets present new risks that could threaten an organization’s reputation, operations, and profitability.
