We are proud to announce that Mr. Lior Cohen WWMarket Ventures CEO joined the Expo as Strategic-Partner in Israel.
Many startups would like to transition from a good idea or initial stages status to international company status, or at least tap into international markets to increase income and moving forward to the next stage. This significant change requires an effective strategy as well as making the right decisions.
On the other hand, if a startup makes impulsive moves without planning, it can result in lost money or the entire startup. The planning stage should cover many areas such as: marketing strategy, work plan creation, business mode, target audience, cultural aspects, marketing channels, budget and more.
WWMarket offers a wide range of services in the global marketing field that can help you to make the transition from early stages to international company without hassles.
