Free Market Entry Analysis for Companies Seeking International Sales

Limited Opportunity – Accepting Applications Now! The Hawaii Export Assistance Center has partnered with Hawaii Pacific University to offer local companies getting started in exporting a free in-depth market entry analysis. During the 2012 Spring semester, MBA students at HPU will develop a complete market entry analysis for local Hawaii companies looking to enter international markets. Several will be assigned to each company and will develop a market entry strategy for one market based on the company’s best prospects. At the conclusion of the semester, the students will present their findings and recommended strategy to the company.

Participant Requirements: Participating companies must have begun selling internationally in the past 3 years or are planning to sell internationally for the first time. General information about the company and its products will need to be shared with the students in order to develop effective strategies. At the conclusion of the semester in May, the company must be present for the student’s final presentation. Limited to 10 companies.

If you are interested in participating, please complete the attached company profile and send to John Holman at
