ABOUT

Global supply chains, consumer markets, and capital markets are a fact of life in the 21st century. The Asia-Pacific region is home to almost one-third of the world’s population and accounts for almost one-third of global GDP.  The EU is the world’s largest common market. Lower shipping costs, global trade agreements, and new technologies are driving growing interdependence between Western and Asian economies.

The fact of global markets offers both opportunity and risk. Blue Water Growth works with you to identify and leverage opportunities while mitigating and managing risk. Our network of counselors and advisors has a demonstrated and successful track record in both competing and collaborating with global companies, working with local governments, and navigating the unique regulatory environments  inherent to operating globally. We are ready to apply this talent and experience to helping solve your most difficult problems.

Strategic Consulting 

A large manufacturing firm supplying critical power distribution equipment to the data center industry was faced with the challenge of establishing nationwide service and maintenance capabilities when their growth overwhelmed current resources.

 

BWG provided a complete analysis of various alternatives considering internal team growth, subcontracting, long-term partnership relations and acquisition targets to provide the service capability.

 

Once acquisition was identified as the preferable alternative, Blue Water Growth sorted from 26 possible acquisition targets to a short list of six that were perfectly positioned to address the client needs.

Operations & Supply Chain 

A manufacturing firm producing custom products had not found an ERP system that would manage scheduling in the simple way they knew fit their business.

 

Their current system used a homegrown spreadsheet that was buggy and unstable as no off-the-shelf system fit their needs. The time had come to develop something better.

 

Blue Water Growth was able to combine our experience in software project management and operations to drive the development of a custom software package that when integrated with the off-the-shelf ERP system simplified scheduling while improving OTD and responsiveness to customer requirements.

A biomedical services company providing testing and analysis services in early drug discovery was seeking a methodology and process to fully distribute their sophisticated products requiring special packaging throughout the greater China market.

 

Blue Water Growth evaluated multiple business models as well as identified significant market opportunity for this product and further provided a short list of viable candidates to not only market the services but provide brand development and full end-user engagement.

Blue Water Growth worked with them to fully prepare an offering document that documented value as well as establish the basis for attracting successful investment in these products.

 

Blue Water Growth further was able to provide references and recommendations for funding sources on a domestic as well as international basis and has identified key international distributors of the animal vaccine once testing is completed.
