International Partner Search

International Partner Search (IPS) helps you find potential agents, distributors, manufacturers, representatives, joint venture partners, franchisees, or strategic partners without even leaving the U.S. We will contact a large group of potential partners in Nigeria using the marketing materials you provide, and then identify the companies that are interested and capable of becoming a viable representative for you in Nigeria. The IPS report on these companies includes:

  • contact information and basic business profile on as many as five potential companies and representatives in Nigeria
  • each company's opinion on the market for your product and/or service
  • the U.S. Commercial Service staff's opinion on the contact's level of interest and overall suitability
  • competition from local or third-country firms

This service is typically available within 30 business days of ordering a Gold Key Service. However, due to staffing shortages and heavy demand for services, check with your U.S. Export Assistance Center (USEAC) for timing and availability.

Fee: US $685 for SME companies, $350 for SME New-to-Export Companies using the service for the first time and $2,300 for large companies.
