I see a lot of new great gadgets, advanced cleantech products, or to speak in general terms, a great number of technology-based startups who have a hard time selling outside their country or traditional markets. So I wonder if there is a way to setup a company that, say, identifies great gadgets, then approaches those startups and helps them boost and growth hack their sales internationally.
In short, how do you growth hack, or, for those despising this term, boost sales for non-internet startups?
You'll need to get much more specific.
WHO is the audience?
WHY would they want these "gadgets"?
What problems are you solving, for what audience, that they will pay you to fix?
Do you know what size problem warrants your involvement?
Honestly, your question is so vague right now it can't clearly be answered. Niche it down. You're matching up a buyer with a seller. Who are these people?
It sounds like you'd like to be in a position to help startups grow, and know strategies for that.
The answer is that it depends on what you'll be doing and the nature of the startup you're helping. There are a number of generic tactics you can use, however it mostly depends on the nature of the startup you'll be helping.
Not all of startups might want to grow internationally. For those that do, they might not have a hard time growing outside of their country, it depends if their offer can be monetized outside their regions and traditional markets.
