After validating market potential, this tier of services support established foreign companies in assessing business model adaptations to enter the U.S. market. We take a deeper approach to help you determine what kind of presence in the U.S. is the best fit for your company and avoid setbacks and unforeseen costs. A program fee of $15,000 covers our team's research and consultation. The Navigate level is the second of 3 tiers of services which comprise the Impact Globalizer program; for information on the other tiers visit the Explore and Soft Landings pages.
