“After years of working with tech businesses, I saw an opportunity to improve the success rate of international expansion for those who do not have the in-house expertise or capacity to handle proper planning and ultimately fail"
PETER GILLINGWATER | CEO, NEWFOUND

Newfound was created to help tech scaleups successfully expand to new markets avoiding the common mistakes and pitfalls often made at significant cost.
