Made in Germany

Andra Riemhofer

Working as a consultant, I help international companies enter the German market and avoid the common pitfalls that typically arise from intercultural misunderstandings.

ANDRA’s Service Offer in a Nutshell

I provide step-by-step companionship for small and medium-sized enterprises according to their maturity level in the German market. Along with my hands-on intercultural support with focus on helping my clients build rapport with German decision makers, I offer research, cold calling, appointment setting, trade fair support, and other sales-related services.

Most of my clients are either exporters and business travellers from the UAE and India, or Nordic IT-companies. However, I like to work with people from all over the world. Read more about what I can do for you…
