KEY ASSOCIATES

Our International Partners

We have the privilege of working with two prestigious organizations, GoToMarket Group & Partners, headed by Jochen Berbuer (based in Dusseldorf, Germany) and Blacklin Associates, headed by Scott Blacklin and Elizabeth Hughes-Blacklin (based in Washington DC, USA).

Both specialize in supporting start-ups and established businesses to spread their wings. GTM brings deep industry expertise to work with technology vendors and channel partners to find new markets. Blacklin brings decades of experience in working with major funding mechanisms to help companies reach markets across Emerging Markets not previously within their grasp.
