FD Global’s Growth Runway Program helps Aussie Scaleups Take Flight in the U.S.

As some geographies continue to battle it out with COVID, Australian businesses are focussed on scaling to new markets and accelerating their growth.

The United States – one of the world’s most lucrative markets and the world’s largest economy – continues to lure Australian companies. Two caveats are that it’s a highly competitive and diverse market, requiring local knowledge and contacts.

FD Global Connections specialises in enabling the commercial growth of Australian companies in the U.S. via their Growth RunwayTM Program – a conduit service connecting MVP-ready Australian companies with a trusted pool of commercial agents and sales professionals that can rapidly, effectively and efficiently manage their entry to the U.S.

Trena Blair, FD Global Connection’s CEO and Founder says that although flights to the U.S. are resuming and CEOs are willing to travel, having an established commercial partner in-market is helping to fast-track the footprint of local businesses abroad.

“We are certainly still operating in a hybrid business environment,” Blair said.

“Although face-to-face connections are resuming, there’s a growing demand for commercial outsourcing in terms of sales, distribution and channel partners agreements. The Growth RunwayTM program serves as direct pathway to entry – connecting Australian businesses with a qualified and trusted network of professionals to kick-start and manage their sales in the U.S.,” Blair commented.

Through the partners of FD Global Connections – Australian scaleups can access a ‘plug and play’ solution to achieve their business objectives in the U.S, saving them time, resources as well as minimising risk.

To qualify, Blair says companies must have a proven MVP in at least one market, have existing capital to scale globally and a commitment to establishing their presence in the said market.

An existing Growth RunwayTM client described the program’s value as follows:

“We could have done all the hard slog and tried to establish a footprint on our own, but it would have been incredibly time intensive and expensive. Having immediate access to the right connections and an extensive network of highly qualified sales professionals was a game-changer for us. Their in-market connections and local knowledge helped us expedite our U.S. launch 10x faster than planned.”

FD Global Connections’ CEO said the Growth RunwayTM Program is a low risk, low cost approach to entry.

“We don’t charge a service fee to connect Australian scaleups with our partners. Should Australian scaleups engage the services of our partners, they negotiate commercial terms directly with them.”

“We’ve kept the process straightforward, transparent and accessible – allowing more Founders to see for themselves how we can effectively fast track their U.S. growth plans – providing a great return on their investment,” Blair ended.
