San Diego, CA (PRWEB) June 03, 2013
USA2Europe, a firm that specializes in helping businesses to expand across Europe and supports through partners enterprise operations in 35+ countries, has increased its international support of U.S.-based companies. The firm has hired staff in key markets to answer the call particularly by American tech start-ups for smart, cost-effective back-office services including Facilities, Finance, HR, IT, Legal, Logistics and Company Formation.
“There’s been a slight uptick in the U.S. economy, but we’re seeing a significant increase in both existing and new clients investing in global expansion,” said USA2Europe CEO, Andy Hooper. “American companies have learned to be savvy with their business development spending. We’re hearing from enterprises—especially technology startups—that want to expand without incurring excessive costs or compromising quality back-office support. This is our specialty.”
Committed to making it easier for U.S.-headquartered companies to expand across the globe with offices and on-the-ground support, and through partnerships with local service providers specializing in payroll, finance and compliance in key international markets, USA2Europe currently serves 50+ small to mid-sized enterprises. The firm, with offices and team members in Belgium, Ireland, Singapore, U.K and the U.S., services over 150 business entities worldwide.
The majority of USA2Europe’s long-term customers are privately-owned and venture-backed technology companies. The breakdown of regional operations support is now: Europe (60%), Asia (35%) and Americas (5%).
“Smart companies find whatever way they can to grow on less. They want the most bang for their buck and are finding smaller firms like USA2Europe are more agile and responsive but can provide the same quality service as a big brand firm. In addition, we can be more hands-on with startups, which is often needed during the initial phases of business formation,” said Hooper.
USA2Europe has hired several new senior consultants in key regions where U.S. companies are investing such as: The U.K and Middle East as well as Australia and Singapore. A new internal accountant has also been hired to support the existing staff.
The USA2Europe team has extensive international experience and knowledge of local business laws, practices and culture. Team members are CPA qualified or equivalent, 15+ years working mainly for U.S. technology companies. The firm has seen many startups through company formation, IPO then acquisition: Netezza (acquired by IBM), EqualLogic (acquired by Dell), BladeLogic (acquired by BMC) and Crossbeam (acquired by BlueCoat).
“Also, we’ve built a strong partner network that leverages local talent in attractive markets worldwide offering enterprises a clear advantage. They can save money and get support needed from specialists in the regions where they want to be, while working through one point of contact at USA2Europe rather than with a different contact in every country,” added Hooper.
Founded in 2004, USA2Europe specializes in back-office outsourcing support including Enterprise Payroll, Finance, HR, Legal and Compliance. The firm also has extensive expertise in seeing businesses, particularly technology start-ups, through Company Formations, IPOs and M&A activities. USA2Europe has offices and on-the-ground support in countries including Belgium, Ireland, Singapore, United Kingdom and the United States. Through industry partnerships in other key markets, the firm has expanded its reach to support 150+ business entities in over 35 countries.
