Our Services

We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act, but a habit.— Aristotle

Koios Associates offers companies a systematic, analytical and data-oriented approach to international market entry, sourcing and investment decisions, complemented by on-the-ground strategic, analytical and operational assistance in turning those decisions into profitable operations.

Koios helps clients integrate new market opportunities into global supply chains by helping them determine where and how to source production and whether, where and how to invest internationally. Koios focuses on linking marketing strategy to supply chain management strategy in a value chain, or what some analysts have called a “demand chain,” approach.

Our unique Trade and Investment Decision Support SystemSM (TIDS) helps our clients understand and identify new and growing market expansion opportunities, understand trade barriers and market access agreements, and identify the most competitive locations in which to make a product or provide a service. Using TIDSSM Koios also helps national and regional export development and investment promotion agencies to craft targeted promotion strategies based on a true understanding of the drivers of their national or regional competitive advantages.

Koios complements its data-driven analysis with a global network of regional, country, industry and functional specialists who help our clients translate analysis into action.
