    Dagens marknad är ofrånkomligt global. Med Europa i skuldkris är det läge att titta på nya marknader inte bara för export men finansiering. Saudiarabien och Gulfstaterna erbjuder enorma möjligheter. Följaktligen underlättar jag för företag att lyckas där. Vad jag kan göra för er beror på vad ni vill uppnå i regionen. Har ni en innovativ produkt med goda möjligheter? Forskningen är ännu inte klar och ni har behov av långsiktig finansiering? Då kan vi titta på möjligheten att få investeringar från affärsänglar och/eller riskkapitalbolag i området. Distributör, kundmöten eller etablering där är andra områden där jag kan vara behjälplig.
