ANSWER:

Brad: Do you have expertise in particular countries? If not, your real issue is getting local distributors and representatives. Since the laws concerning products, safety, importation and tariffs differ greatly by country, that is the big issue.

Maybe you can work with a multinational manufacturer and distributor. Secondly, do you own the patent to the product? If not, exactly why are you needed? Why can’t the manufacturers immediately start competing with you?

I hope this helps! Ron Cappuccio
