ibuildcompanies.com Will Be Moving to Singapore

ibuildcompanies.com is Moving to Singapore - ibuildcompanies.com by Jeanne Heydecker


February 18, 2019 – YANGON, MYANMAR: ibuildcompanies.com is very pleased to announce that they will be moving their headquarters to Singapore. With 15 years of experience in the U.S., 10 years in India and nearly two years in Myanmar assisting companies as they scale and achieve their founders’ exit strategies, moving to Singapore uniquely positions ibuildcompanies.com with a broader reach for their expansion plans.

Jeanne Heydecker, Founder and CEO of ibuildcompanies.com, said, “We took this decision to facilitate a closer, more centralized working relationship amongst the team, provide easier travel and visa issues for employees and clients, and have regular meetups.” She went on to say, “The entrepreneurial spirit found in Singapore matches more closely with ibuildcompanies.com’s mission and the business infrastructure suits our consulting services in a way we could not achieve as successfully in emerging markets. While we will continue to focus on emerging markets as their leaders develop and learn the importance of timely and efficient management consulting, we feel well positioned to continue to support our existing clients while expanding into other emerging markets as they become ready for our proprietary innovation, leadership development, and change management programs”.

Jeanne went on to say, “Our goal is to become the “in-house” creative agency for tech incubators and accelerators supporting their funded companies across Southeast Asia. With a monthly retainer fee from the incubator/accelerator, all their funded companies can seek business advice, design and writing services as well as assistance in planning their product launches, create memorable events, and more at very affordable prices. We believe our business model is unique and creates a real win-win for both the incubator/accelerator and their investments. We bring quality and innovation to everything we do and it shows.”
