Go to Market Entry Services

Market Entry Services

Internationalization is not something to be taken easy, only a planned roadmap combined with sufficient resources and the right partner will be the key of your success on markets that you are new on. At FinnSEA, we understand that conquering a new market can be exciting, needed, or even intimidating but going blind and without experience can lead to situations where lot of resources have been consumed for a very little or any results. This is why, with our team of seasoned professional consultants, we develop continuously tailor-made turnkey solutions that fit different companies needs to ensure them a successful market entry solution.

Go to Market Sourcing Services

Market Sourcing Services

Sourcing from Vietnam has become more and more popular due wide availability of manual workforce and cost effective environment. However, one of the key challenges remains the fact that the production is scattered in wide region and is difficult to reach without local presence. Subcontracting in Vietnam is widely used in several industries like mechanical construction, assembly, textile, furniture but also in software, imaging and media creation industries. Once again, main benefits and challenges are similar to Sourcing activities. Starting the manufacturing in VietNam is a choice which many companies only dream about. The task is not easy but not extremely complicated neither. It takes time and patience, like in every developing country, but it also needs a presence to be able to advance the project.
