PREDA offers growing companies the following services:
- Tailored support over the long term – ensuring that the innovations you develop mesh effectively with your international expansion strategy
Our advisors work with companies that are looking to build an international expansion strategy, identifying appropriate support and financing solutions as their plans develop. They can work with you to identify support and financing solutions appropriate to your international development stage and the nature of your project (export sales, local operations in one or more countries, creating a subsidiary, growth by acquisition, technology partnership).
Our Paris Region Entreprises support program for growing businesses provides the framework for helping your business grow over the longer term.
- Local contacts in your target markets – using PREDA’s international network
PREDA has offices located at the heart of key international markets, mobilizing their resources to facilitate and accelerate your expansion: they can assess your project and provide practical guidance to help you get your plans under way. Within their local market they can offer all-round support, putting you in contact with relevant experts and partners from their network of contacts.
- Promoting your business in our international promotion drives
Promoting Paris Region’s SMEs and research organizations is a major component of our promotional drives. Providing concrete examples of representative companies from the Paris Region ecosystem helps us to reinforce and illustrate the image of a technology-focused, innovative region. We can include your company in these promotional initiatives, publicizing your offer to your target sector and key international markets.
“We are currently facing two kinds of challenges: commercial challenges that we must be able to handle, and the challenges relating to innovations in technology.
We already have a subsidiary in the United States and we are seriously thinking about developing business in Asia, where we are specifically looking at opening a subsidiary in Hong Kong. The team at Paris Region Entreprises has given us a huge amount of information about all of the “legal and statutory aspects” pertaining to international development. But above all, thanks to Paris Region Entreprises, I was able to get in touch with the director of an intermediate-sized French company’s Chinese subsidiary working in a relatively similar business to our own.
And that truly is extremely valuable: they share their experience, they provide pragmatic assistance, tangible advice and useful tips on what one has to do as well as what one has to avoid! That was precisely what we needed and was difficult to obtain by ourselves as a purely private operator.
We were also happy to get initial, substantial advice from the Director of PREDA’s American subsidiary. This was a great help to us in giving us some pointers that we were sometimes lacking, as well as imparting a certain know-how relating to the cultural aspect of business dialogue.”
