Since 2002, Horizon Development has been managing strategic relationships, identifying new business development opportunities and opening new markets for both larger Fortune 500 companies and innovative startups.

In addition to our well preforming Market Sniper program (accelerated market & customer acquisition), Horizon has been specializing in due diligence, market research, cost-benefit analysis, change management and the mapping of business requirements for IT and software companies.

Horizon Development has also a particularly strong commitment to local and regional economic development, to environmental and energy issues, to the marketing of tourism destinations and especially to the digitization of society in the Baltic Sea Region and in Estonia in particular since the opening of its office there in 2005.

Horizon Development services are organized around a central team and a pool of field experts regrouped in various units with a specialized expertise and focus that often complement each other for the specific needs of our private and public clients in various sectors:

Fast track programs @ horizon development markets (open the flap and get started)

Market Sniper

    • Market Sniper is the "hands-on" accelerated customer acquisition program that has been making a name for itself in making a difference for young bootstrapped startup companies.
    • But it's not just limited to startups. It allows bigger and more experienced companies to also reduce risks in their new markets acquisition, especially foreign ones where they perceived the risk level as being much higher.
    • It allows your company to get access to some of the most experienced and best connected "snipers" in your industry
    • It covers most industries, but not all (inquire with us)
    • Mostly B2B
    • It may looks like, but it's not a free program.
    • It's just that Market Sniper's financial cost is tied to its client's success on those new markets. The cost is also differed to later terms, once revenues are generated.
    • It's yet the program on the market that allows for the lowest possible financial risk (maybe that explains its popularity... :-) but yet truly delivers
    • Horizon Development is thus here taking the same risks as an angel investor and therefore requires some of the same due diligence during the application process
