This is just to get you to take some action, in the form of research, OK? You both need to start making contacts, the more you have, the more people you know, the better it will work for you.
So to begin. In Germany there is a company with International Presence except in Africa. We know Germany is looking to invest in Africa, in Nigeria as we see from news reports. When I say Germany, think not just of the Govt but of all the small businesses there.
One product we see at the SKYLOTEC Co. is the INCEPTOR safety helmet, and they have all types, but focus on the High Voltage (just as an exercise),
Now at the African end, in Nigeria, the research goes like: Top Construction Companies,
You want to get to know what these companies are involved with, what projects are on the boards, but also, what future projects will look like.
Say Ibadan, just a dart on my map. I would want to know who buys stuff at the local levels, be they cities, or locales.
So I would study:
These to get a feel for what is going on.
Like this report:
SEE there will be need for thousands, if not tens of thousands of Electrical Saftety helmets for the project. Where will they come from?
In Nigeria, I would start a small import business, the most important thing is to have stationery and a web site, to show you do International business, you are already leaning in that direction pinkpanther, right?
You would write a letter asking for exclusive marketing rights just for Nigeria, and for a fixed time period, say one year, to market the German made safety helmets.
I would know about head injuries and construction accidents, like this report:
Gov'ts and businesses alike KNOW the need for head gear, and for special headgear for electrical.
This may seem complicated, but if you or anyone is looking for simple and easy, then International Toll Positions are NOT for you. It takes time, but assuming you're prepared to put in the time and energy to build a business, then you will do the research.
