Promote your company profile in the business cooperation database

In order to promote your company profile in the Network database, each company offering or requesting a product or a service has to fill in a company profile submission form. Beside a short abstract and a more detailed description of the product/service, further information is requested as follows:

  • Type of cooperation sought (trade intermediary, franchise, transport/logistic, joint venture, merger / exchange of shares, sale / acquisition, reciprocal production, subcontracting / outsourcing activities
  • Innovative aspects
  • Type of partner sought (e.g. manufacturer, wholesaler, distributor, services provider, etc.)
  • Expectation from the potential partner

Through the database, you can target specific countries and industry sectors.

How it works

EEN Japan can only accept profiles from Japanese companies. EU SMEs interested to submit a profile, please contact us first and we will introduce you to your relevant local EEN representative.

Send us the company profile submission form filled in with your business cooperation offer or request.

Once the business profile is validated, it will be published without the company details in the online database as well as in the business cooperation e-Alerts (via email), and will be distributed to potential partners through the Network organisations in order to raise expressions of interest. 

Any feedback from companies interested in the same kind of business as you will be forwarded to you with their contact details. Then you decide on the further steps with regard to the companies interested in your profile (email, phone or personal meetings).

Business offer profile. (you are proposing your product/service)

The service is completely free of charge, look at the commitment agreement.
