Finding the right partners is essential for business success, especially when expanding into new markets. The right partners can provide you with the skills, resources, and expertise you need to succeed. They can also help you mitigate risks and overcome challenges.
I have over 23 years of experience as a cross-border expert, working with companies looking to expand and helping find the right partnerships for them. I founded Intermestic Partners to help companies navigate international business expansion. Today, with nearshoring, we are helping companies find the right partners to enter Mexico.
Here are some of the key factors to consider when looking for partners:
Complementary skills and experience. You want partners who have different skills and experience than you do. This will allow you to pool your resources and expertise to create a more well-rounded business.
Shared values and goals. It is important to find partners who share your values and goals. This will ensure that you are working towards the same things and that you can build a strong, lasting relationship.
Trust and respect. Trust and respect are essential for any successful partnership. You need to be able to trust your partners to follow through on their commitments and to act in the best interests of the business.
Once you have found a few potential partners, it is important to interview them and get to know them on a personal level. This will help you determine if they are someone you can work with and trust.

Nearshoring is the practice of moving manufacturing or other business operations to a neighboring country. Nearshoring to Mexico is a popular option for many businesses because it offers a number of advantages, including:
Lower labor costs. The cost of labor in Mexico is significantly lower than in the United States.
Favorable trade agreements. Mexico has a number of favorable trade agreements with the United States and other countries, which can help to reduce tariffs and other costs.
Strong infrastructure. Mexico has a strong infrastructure, including roads, ports, and airports, which makes it easy to transport goods and materials.
Access to a skilled workforce. Mexico has a large and skilled workforce that is available for manufacturing and other jobs.
