2007 Soft Landings International
Every day, companies are expanding into international markets. If these firms bring their businesses to your region, it could mean more clients for your incubator – and all the accompanying increases in revenue, prestige and more. But if you want to land foreign businesses, you need to let them know you can accelerate their growth. The NBIA Soft Landings designation lets foreign firms know that NBIA, the world's leading organization advancing business incubation and entrepreneurship, has identified your incubator as having specialized programs and/or facilities for helping companies break into new markets.
What kind of specialized programs might a company entering a foreign market need? Examples of programs and areas of assistance that an incubator could offer include:
- Translation services
- Language training
- Domestic market research and entry assistance
- Access to capital and potential funders
- Intellectual property protection assistance
- Help meeting government regulations
- Help with import/export laws
- Patent assistance
- Help obtaining business and driver’s licenses
- Cultural training
- Immigration & visa assistance
- Housing assistance
