We deliver innovation & collaboration opportunities combined with practical business development results. This is achieved through our customizable service functions including research, market entry strategy, sales, trade logistics, marketing, PR, and in-market representation.
We do not consult – we do. Our team has years of hands-on business development experience and extensive networks at all levels and types of organizations. Underlying our approach is a belief that brands should own their own story and destiny. So we generally start any outreach by talking directly to the end customers and brand owners – working from this engagement back to the preferred business model and market entry structure. This secures much better market insights, flexibility of approach and control of your IP, product or service.
Because of our dedication and transparency, partners we have represented in the Korean market rightly view us as employees of their companies and invest the same level of trust. This aspect of the way we work has been key to many of the incredibly successful product launches and enduring relationships between all parties involved. Added to this is our ability to operate outside the box, tackling objectives and challenges differently which ensures promotions we work on stand out and deliver a much better return on investment. This approach has also cemented year-on-year collaborations between the brands we represent and their Korea partners.

We have invested heavily in this sector and operate one of the highest profile sustainability linked platforms, SB Seoul, in Korea.
