We’re working on a new startup that will aim to be a sort of marketplace of services (similar to Freelancer.com). Our home market is quite good and rich, but we were wondering whether we should start locally or go global from day 1.
We offer a brokerage service (the platform, basically) and services are sellable online or through the phone. So we don’t really need to be physically anywhere for client meetings or raise investment - we will self fund.
What’s the risk of going global straight away? What would you do?
