We created Battle Tested Consultant late 2019 after witnessing in our international careers that all SMEs, startups, and entrepreneurs faced similar issues and questions when they started thinking of going global, wherever they may start from, whatever their objectives and whatever their industries. We see it as a sandbox where we will add and integrate tools, services and expertise and new experiences that we hope will be both fun and effective.
OUR SPIRIT OF ADVENTURE
The current project is the result hundreds of tiny little stories, challenges, joys and even at times worries that we all faced as international business people, dealing with the realities of the countries and people we worked in, on the ground, not always in a fancy office with everything ready at-hand and a guaranteed income! We all had to address multiple and sometimes tough challenges to be able to generate revenue.
We know what it takes administratively, financially and even psychologically! We are trying to build a service the way we would have loved to have it when we started our own ventures. The current project is the result hundreds of tiny little stories, challenges, joys and even at times worries that we all faced. In short, it is part of the spirit of adventure that led us around the world testing ideas, developing services and that we want to convey in our interactions with clients. We are not an investment office, or a legal or financial advisory offices or a government export platforms. All of these are all fine. We're just willing to bring another dimension to what already exists: your empowerment.
OUR MISSION: EMPOWERING YOU
Our goal is to offer SMEs, entrepreneurs and startups an internationalization platform through which they can centralize resources, access relevant tools, and know-how relevant to their international projects.
We believe that any company and firm can go global provided they have developed reliable services and products, that they design a realistic strategy and they are able to operate within a global mindset. Entrepreneurs, startups and SMEs should be empowered and not feel they are being trapped by a wall of experts or organizations they don't have the time resources to properly research. This is why we are transforming our firm into a multi-service platform offering tools, expertise and operational support for internationalization projects.
We're aware of the scale of this ambition and we will do it by being in constant dialogue with our clients, stakeholders and partners all around the world. We believe in dreaming big, and are ready to welcome you if you relate to our vision.
At Battle Tested Consultant we all are multilingual, adept at intercultural communication and yes, "battle tested", by which we mean that all of us, associates or partners and experts spent years and if not decades developing business in multiple countries as managers or entrepreneurs, having a real understanding of the complexity of legal, cultural and business constraints. We come from different cultural and business backgrounds, from Pakistan to Turkey, via the UAE, Canada and many other places, from IT to legal and education. We graduated from top schools from Imperial College (UK) to McGill (Canada) and are able to work in mutliple languages. We came as a team because we felt we had a mission to build a better quality service with realistic pricing and a unique client experience.
