“The main challenge for the Nordic software industry is not lack of captive test market, but lack of volume market,” says Jan de Blanck, executive partner with TBK Consult. “The Nordic markets are 4 individual markets and not one of them represents more than 0,75% of global IT demand. Software companies from the Nordics are typically very small when they embark on the road to international market penetration. The TBK Consult concepts and global network of partners are designed exactly to compensate for this dilemma."
Jan de Blanck has more than 25 years of experience in getting software products, solutions and services to the international markets. Jan has over the years built an extensive (1000+) personal network in the Nordics, Western Europe, North America, Australasia and The Middle East. Jan had held positions as CEO and VP Sales and Marketing in several software companies with international focus and strategies.
Jan holds a Bachelor of Commerce in Marketing and Economics.
“Genuine international business development experience is extremely rare,” says Hans Peter Bech, CEO of TBK Consult “With Jan de Blanck on board we have added a senior experienced international business development expert to the TBK network. Jan has been in the field for many years and knows what it takes to build a market from scratch and take his company to a leading position. The practical experience and the personal network is what our clients are looking for to help them accelerate their own international market penetration.”
