Frequently Asked Questions

What does Crossing35 mean?

The number 35 refers to Earth’s lines of 35 Longitude and 35 Latitude.

The EU ends at the intersection of these lines, at a point just outside Cyprus. 

To ‘Cross 35’ means to take your company beyond Europe and venture into international markets.

What does Crossing35 do?

Crossing35 helps CEOs tap global markets through cross-border partnerships.

It’s an Artificial Intelligence (AI) enabled platform designed to make tapping global markets nearly as straightforward as doing business within the EU

Crossing35 allows CEOs to double their business’ global footprint in 11 months.

How much does it cost?

Crossing35 makes tapping international markets highly affordable.

For less than half the cost of a minimum wage worker in the UK, you gain access to our comprehensive globalization ecosystem for your preferred destination market.

What problem does Crossing35 solve?

Lack of Knowledge is the primary factor which consistently holds back CEOs headings SMEs from venturing into Global Markets. This is because a lack of knowledge opens you up to the following risks when going global:

  1. Not being able to fully plan out the journey which lies ahead
  2. Not being prepared for the steps in the journey
  3. Being ill-prepared to deal with the destination market’s unique character and the third parties who’s abilities and local expertise you require
  4. Finding yourself in a “destined-to-fail” Joint Venture, wishing you could rewind the clock and ensured you and your business partner saw eye-to-eye from the start.

How does Crossing35 solve this problem?

Our ecosystem addresses the main issues holding back CEOs and mitigates risk in four distinct areas.

  1. 'Go Global' Workbook ensures your approach is structured and based on up-to-date and relevant knowledge.
  2. Country-Specific Chatbots assist in your filling out of the Workbook, ensuring that decisions are informed.
  3. Digital Training Modules are tailored to each destination market and include everything you will need to know to make sure you get off on the right foot.
  4. CEO Database & Partner-Finder ensures your JV is with a partner who is as ambitious, capable and as ready as you are.

Who is it for?

Crossing35 is for both British CEOs who want to tap global markets, and for CEOs from all over the world who want to do business with British companies and expand their business into the UK and the EU.

Our members are CEOs whose goal is to aggressively expand their business globally.

They are ambitious business leaders who want to be contacted by fellow CEOs from across the globe, and explore cross-border business opportunities, either in your home country or in theirs. They are open for possible Joint Ventures.

How Will Crossing35 Help Me Find a Partner?

Crossing35 uses its global CEO database in combination with a unique, machine-learning-based partner-matching algorithm to leverage deep insight into potential cross-border partnerships. They ensure the most value will be derived from those ventures which go ahead.

The user is provided with a shortlist of suitable JV partners from their destination market. The matching algorithm takes into account over 20 distinct criteria to build a comprehensive profile of each CEO as well as their company.

Which countries can I tap?

In 2018, Crossing35 will help connect businesses between the UK and India and look to incorporate Australia and The USA, totaling four massive English-speaking markets.

We aim for Crossing35 to become a truly global platform and will add further destination markets on a rolling basis.

Is there a trial period?

No, there is not trial period. Your subscription with Crossing35 comes with a 60-day, no questions asked, money-back guarantee. You have nothing to lose - Even if you decide not to implement your plan, you will gain invaluable insight into your business's capacity to go global.

How does Crossing35 use Artificial Intelligence?

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is applied in more than one area of the Crossing35 ecosystem.

We uses state-of-the-art Machine Learning (ML) algorithms to gain insight into potential partnerships across international borders. This ensures that the user is given a valuable and bespoke shortlist of potential JV partners.

Additionally, both Natural Language Processing (NLP) and Machine Learning are implemented in the Chatbots, allowing them to have natural and fluid conversations with the user. They understand the user's intent, and provide them with the information they require.

Is the route to market same for each country?

Absolutely not!

Business rules are different in every country. What works in India will not work in China or America. Similarly, the route to market to India is very different to China, which again is different to America

The fact is, there exists a best and a worst way to approach every foreign market.

Crossing35 has developed a unique Go Global Methodology that helps CEOs isolate the best route to market in each of the country, allowing them to accomplish a cost and time-effective landing in each market every time.
