Our Virtual Acceleration services support established foreign companies in exploring the most viable pathways to enter the U.S. market. After validating market potential, this program takes a deeper approach to help you determine what kind of presence in the U.S. is the best fit for your company — whether that be a sales office, U.S. branch, U.S.-based partner, full transfer of the company, or more. A program fee of $15,000 covers our team's research and consultation.
A) Virtual support from Idea Foundry's Pittsburgh-based team during the three month program, connections to Idea Foundry's business network, and continuing opportunity to apply for other Idea Foundry programs
B) Business model and market penetration assessment and consultation, customized to the needs and industry of each company, including:
- exploration and presentation of business pathways, regulations, licenses, import and export requirements, and more
- connections to business and immigration lawyers if applicable

C) By the end of the program, companies should gain an understanding of the most economical and viable pathway to access the U.S. market and the steps involved in moving forward along that pathway.
