International Partner Search

The International Partner Search (IPS) has been designed to help U.S. companies find a local UK business partner. The finished IPS provides you with a report on up to five qualified British candidates that have examined your promotional sales materials, and that have subsequently expressed an interest in discussing your proposal further.

Before submitting the final IPS report, we make contact with all the companies that express interest in your product or service to learn from them any specific questions or comments they may have in relation to your proposal. We only include those companies that confirm their interest in the final report.

Also included in the final report are complete contact details for the British companies; basic marketing information; our opinion of their level of interest, together with our assessment of the overall suitability of the identified companies.
