How is Nordic West USA different from organizations such as Business Sweden or Business Finland?
Business Sweden and Business Finland are government agencies that use tax-payer money to support the initial international expansion of the companies from their respective countries. They are bound by public scrutiny and set processes.
Nordic West USA, on the other hand, is a private company that gives each client full individual attention. We customize projects so that they fit the client’s strategic needs, competencies and budget.
Is Nordic West USA a trade association?
Nordic West USA is not a trade association, but part of our service offerings include helping you decide if joining a trade association in the United States is the right move for you.
Trade associations tend to carry more weight with Congress and the Executive Branch, eliminating the issues of undue corporate preference. They are not effective, by nature, for strategy and business development, highlighting a business’s specific view point or recognizing and alerting on singular critical developments. At Nordic West USA, we frequently conduct membership evaluations for our clients as part of stakeholder strategy development efforts.

Nordic West USA is the U.S. affiliate of the Nordic strategic advisory group Miltton. We are owned by Miltton and the Nordic West Office partners.
