Market Strategy and Opportunity Assessment
Leverage IBSi’s deep market-entry strategy experience, combined with our intelligence on global financial technology, and work with us to discover a clear way-forward plan to assist in new markets. Over an 8–12 week period, our teams work with you to develop, assess, and implement new market and product growth plans. Our approach is holistic, spanning from internal assessments of your products, services, channels, customers, to an exhaustive external assessment of new markets, landscapes, competition, and feasibility.
Partner Search and Identification
Once we’ve formulated the optimal market strategy for you, our teams will go ahead and develop a best-in-class partner or target identification plan. This can include a list of target firms for a potential M&A opportunity, collaboration with regulatory or government bodies, or entering a strategic alliance or a joint venture with a synergistic partner.
Putting to work our deep global technology relationships and intelligence, combined with additional research using strategic and fitment filters, will result in us presenting a shortlist of compatible best-fit partners or targets for your corporate strategy teams to act on.
