Project description

Our goal is to expand into nordics. We have already experimented in Norway and found out that competition is very low, so we feel there is a great potential for expansion in Nordic countries and beyond.

As a part of research we expect you to conduct GAP analysis to determine the mismatch between our current offerings and what companies see the value in and ideally would like to purchase. We will provide an access to our customer data as well as direct contact to conduct interviews, experiment and repackage our offerings.

Our current strategy and position in a market is also subject to analysis. At the moment we target insurance companies, large Danish companies like Maersk and Classification companies. We would like you to look into our competitors, their offerings, performance, customers portfolio and benchmark us accordingly. Based on competitors analysis carve unique selling proposition in a market for us and determine potential.

Expected outcome of a project is a report and a presentation which would help us to navigate in a decision-making whether we should enter new markets and how we should proceed this strategically.
