1) Market Entry Study

After many of its competitors entered the Chinese market, a high-end European cosmetics brand gained interest to connect to the Chinese consumer. This company was not unknown in China but had no solid connections with sales and distribution channels. They contacted 1421 Consulting Group to map the market and evaluate the feasibility of market entry.

With a comprehensive Market Entry Study from 1421’s analysts, the company was able to develop relationships with industry-leading sales and distribution channels.

Today the company’s China operations are growing rapidly and their products are sold in chain stores throughout China.

Through the careful and diligent approach of 1421, the company found a niche in China and sees a promising future in the Chinese market.

2) Business Consultancy

An experienced European event management company wants to introduce their specialized concept to China. The company has entered markets around the world, but they need advice to adapt their business model to China’s unique legal environment.

After consultation with 1421, the company learned that in order to do business legally in China they would have to set up a joint venture with a local company. And in order to obtain the necessary event management licenses, they needed to correctly structure their organization according to Chinese regulations.

With 1421’s assistance the company chose a joint venture partner and set up a legally sound organizational structure. The partner fits the company’s needs and provides valuable insights on how to do business in China to ensure future success of the partnership.

3) Office Facilitation

A high-end professional services firm wanted to survey their prospects in the Chinese market but their initial operations were too small to register as a business entity or build a dedicated team in China.

1421’s Office Facilitation service was the perfect solution to their problem. At a fraction of the cost of opening an office and hiring a staff, the company leased temporary office space at 1421’s Beijing headquarters and relied on our team while they investigated opportunities in China.

By starting to explore the Chinese market next door to 1421’s team of experts, the company had fulltime access to business and IT support, researchers, lawyers, accountants, admins, and drivers.

During visits from the company’s European headquarters, 1421’s logistical support ensured flying starts to their business meetings in China. With 1421’s help, the firm established strong local partnerships and expanded operations to the point that they have currently outgrown our concept. At this moment the firm is registering their own business entity and is opening an office with the revenues made during their time with 1421.

4) Company Registration Services

In China, even the seemingly straightforward task of setting up your company’s administration can be fraught with complexity. The fact that all administration is required to be written and documented in Chinese is just the start.

Fortunately for our international clients, 1421’s team of local and international staff speak fluent English and have years of experience assisting foreign firms to set up their administration in China.

1421’s professional administration support has allowed clients from industries including graphic design, agriculture, and human resource to focus on growing their business in China without worrying about the competence, cost, or reliability of their administrators.

5) Legal Services

1421 offers advice and services to our international clients to ensure their operations are safe, sound, and efficient. Our services include drafting legal agreements related to labor and employment, distribution, partnerships, and sales.
