Kylii Kids, a specialist in digital and interactive kids corners games for retail, worked with Business France in order to conduct a targeted business trip mission in Germany. Their potential clients were difficult to approach for a company which is new on this market. Several contacts were initiated and the conclusion of a first collaboration with ECE, a real estate company with numerous shopping centers, was able to start successfully.
The commitment, rigor and precision of information and contacts provided by Business France made it possible for us to accelerate our international development. The rapid return on investment also allowed us to validate our commercial strategy.
You should try it as well!
