EXPERT INTERVIEW

GS Partners gives you access to one-on-one interviews with subject-matter experts from a wide variety of industries. We introduce you to vetted experts, and you can interview them online or meet them face-to-face.
Nowadays, there is an overabundance of information. However, this makes it difficult to asses the accuracy and relevancy of information. Market research can take a lot of time and money, but by interviewing an expert directly, you can quickly pinpoint the information you want to know in a short time and at a minimum cost.
Quicker and better research enables you to accelerate the growth of your company, and in turn, leads to business success.
Why not consult with an expert before undertaking more time-consuming and expensive research work? An expert can guide you in which ways to pursue your research.

We also have experts in many other countries. We have an extensive database of experts readily available, and if an expert is not available or if you have special requirements, we can recruit a new expert for you on short notice, usually in 1 to 3 days.
In addition to our global network of experts, GS Partners also has many connections with niche industries and fields, this allows us to recruit experts that can answer your questions, even for niche needs.

MARKET RESEARCH

In addition to our services of organizing and conducting expert interviews, we also offer market research as a complete solution.
When doing market research overseas it can be difficult to know in detail the actual conditions, rules, and culture of the local market. Specially if market research is done only by indirect means, such as online surveys. On the other hand, field survey can be expensive and time consuming.
The solution to these problems is using GS Partners’ global expert network for market research.
By tapping into our global network, we can deliver an accurate report that directly reflects the advice and knowledge from local experts, all of it in a short time and at a minimum cost.
We can help you get access to regions and markets that were previously out of reach. This is a chance to expand your business and discover new possibilities.
