Trade Corner

This is David, your friendly neighborhood Trade and Export Guru, well Guru might be a little strong, shall we say Trade & Export Geek!

When I was working in export development and using Gazelle regularly, I treated the G. Score kind of as an add-on that didn’t have much relevance to my trade work. Sure, it was impressive, and when I was working on an FDI project or talking about Gazelle, the G. Score was awesome; but, in my every day tasks, I didn’t use it very much.

Maybe you’re like I was, and don’t see much overlap between the G. Score and your trade searches. Of course, it was built specifically for investment attraction. But, that doesn’t mean it is useless for us trade folk. In fact, I’m going to share 3 ways the G. Score could add color and accuracy to your searches. Let’s go.

  1. Overall health of a company - while you may not need to know the specific timing of a company’s expansion, the AI is essentially designed to find companies that are poised to double the revenue in the next 5 years. So, if you find a company with an above average G. Score, this company is most likely a healthy, growing company. A company that will need more suppliers/purchases/partners to grow with in the coming years. These are marks of a good partner, so they should be prioritized for outreach.

  2. Specific export growth plans - While not specifically the AI-powered G. Score, if you find a local company with a G. Score of 6, you might also be finding specific export plans. You’ll find export plans ranging from joint venture manufacturing facilities to sales offices to small R&D offices.

  3. Secondary market research - Since the G. Score is based on industry and location information, as well as firm-level data, you can use the G. Scores of company groups potentially learn more about the viability of any market. If you can’t find any companies with good G. Scores in a specific country/industry pairing, this could be an indication that the industry and country pairing aren’t in growth mode. It would be a good idea to double check the product level market research you’ve conducted to make sure this market is a good option.
