We have the experience to help Korean businesses.

About SBF Consulting

SBF Consulting grew out of the realization that many small and medium Korean businesses do not have experienced staff to support starting in international business, and that there are few ways for people in small and medium size businesses to learn how to work with foreigners.

Our business philosophy

Small and medium businesses are Korean’s next export growth area. While Korean companies have excellent products, not all small and medium companies have the skills needed to tackle the global market. That’s where we help; we provide the necessary global skills to help small and medium Korean businesses improve their global effort.

Why use SBF Consulting

There are few western business people in Korea that provide support for small and medium size enterprises to expand internationally.

Our support and training is based on:

  • Over 60 years’ combined international experience.
  • Conducted business in more than a dozen countries in Asia, Europe, and North America.
  • Gave thousands of presentations.
  • Created business proposals that lead to over $100 million in business.
