With over 65 million inhabitants, France is the second biggest country in Europe and represents multiple opportunities. Still, France is often at the bottom of the list of export countries to explore due to the many challenges associated with entering the French market. It requires a certain amount of ingredients to make a perfect market entry to France: in-depth knowledge of the market, linguistic skills, ideally a local network and presence and an excellent cultural understanding. In other words, it requires resources – time-consuming resources – which are not always available internally.
Link to France can cost-effectively remove this burden for you. We are located in Paris and have an extensive French and international network in many sectors, in-depth cultural knowledge and of course strong linguistic skills in French, English and Danish.
We can help you gain the necessary knowledge of your specific sector on the French market with in-depth market studies or just an overview – we adapt to your needs.
If you already have the market knowledge, we can help you identify and contact potential French partners and customers.
First, we establish your ideal customer/partner profile. We then develop a list of contacts with various information. From this list, we make a selection of those contacts you prefer and then we proceed with the matchmaking. We organise a meeting programme and accompany you to the presentation meetings when needed.
Link to France also offers a complete package to make the best of your participation in French trade shows. In the case of a product launch, we can help you identify the right PR agency, find and contact the ideal stakeholders, and organise the event from A to Z.
Do you already have an initial presence on the French market? Would you like to reach the next step? Link to France can help you. We can act as your interim local representative (see the PACKAGES section here below) and handle your specific customer queries methodically avoiding that you take too many risks in hiring a person locally. Once you have reached the next step, we can undertake the recruitment of your Key Account Manager, your Area Sales Manager or your Office Manager. We have an extensive network in France and good results in recruiting the ideal candidates for several satisfied clients.
