GeoWel research can offer a range of different research services for businesses who are looking to move into the regional market-place or expand their activities. The GeoWel team generally also has extensive experience in market, value chain and general economic analysis.
In addition, Dr George Welton, the Executive Director, is a trained auditor who used to work in Corporate Turn-Around for KPMG in London. He has extensive experience in business planning and project development work in the UK, Russia and Georgia.
We can help businesses that plan to expand their operations or engage in new activities to develop business plans including cash-flow planning, profit and loss estimates and return on investments based on different financing structures.
Early project evaluation and preparatory due dilligence.
We can analyse the feasibility of particular ideas. Our researchers have already done this in the Georgian parking, utilities and telecoms sectors and the property sector in both Georgia and Russia.
This can be as simple as investigation work or it can be as complex as preliminary business planning including cash-flow analysis and earnings projections based on different business models.
This can be combined with market surveys. We are particularly well placed to connect with local businesses as we have a full list of Georgia's registered and active businesses and a national network of surveyors that we can draw upon. As members of the American Chamber of Commerce we are also well placed to contact the large international organisations based in Georgia.
Country risk analysis/Sector analysis.
Tailored country risk analysis can offer responses and data on specific concerns that will differ across industries. We can also provide sector analysis that will offer clear summaries of the market place in a particular area including analysis of the existing operators, likely demand for particular products and economic, social and political risk factors.
Social Impact Analysis
Many companies now undertake social impact analysis as part of a possible project or privatisation bid, or as part of their belief in Corporate Social Responsibility. By combining an understanding of business analysis and economic/social development work, GeoWel is ideally located to undertake this kind of work.
