United States Market Entry for Italian Enterprises

by Marco Q. Rossi & Associates PLLC

We have prepared a Blog series on U.S. Market Entry for Italian Enterprises, in which we share our thoughts and experiences on the challenges and opportunities arising from the attempt to enter and grow in the United States and expand globally from there.

The U.S. marketplace is the pinnacle of business growth and investment opportunity; competitive, fast-moving, and dynamic, yet the most accessible in the world. In many respects, the U.S. remains the most attractive and largest global investment destination, far outstripping other nations in foreign direct investment dollars. Foreign investment in the U.S. provides access to the vast American marketplace, its deep talent pool, a stable and innovative business environment, and intelligent and rich investment finance and capital sources.

The U.S. offers a business ecosystem unmatched in the world, comprised of world-class universities, flexible labor markets, deep, talented labor pools, and a highly developed judicial system protective of foreign investment and intellectual property. Moreover, its financial markets and stock exchanges provide a vast array of sophisticated financial products and capital sources, with unlimited venture capital and private equity sources. And finally, it serves as an excellent gateway to expanding business in Canada, Mexico, and Latin America.

The series encompasses a broad spectrum of U.S. market entry modalities. These modalities are discussed in the context of the level of risk and reward that each modality presents to the Italian enterprise. Beginning with a simple U.S. representative or branch office and ending with foreign direct investment upon U.S. soil, the level of risk increases exponentially as capital is brought onshore and permanently invested in a direct foreign investment project. Yet, with greater risk comes greater rewards for successful U.S. market penetration. Presenting this series through the lens of escalating levels of risk provides the Italian enterprise with the proper strategic insight into assessing the merits of these different market entry modalities.

Our firm intimately understands the different risk levels in cross-border entry for Italian enterprises as we have counseled and participated in each market entry modality. Our legal, tax and business services seek to reduce and effectively manage project and investment risk, and we stand ready to assist your market entry plans.
