GDPData principles

Our proven market intelligence system follows a three-dimensional approach to rating companies regarding their investment potential, thanks to the application of a selection of up to 20 filters available in GDPData.

Together with our clients, we establish specific criteria to be used in the identification, segmentation and prequalification of the list of investment prospects.

The result is a pre-qualified list of potential investors on which the promotion and marketing efforts will focus.

GDPLeads strategy

GDPLeads uses the concept of proposition-based marketing to generate an introductory material for highly specific investment opportunities for each priority sector / industrial subsector. Jointly with our clients, we formulate assertive and relevant messages to initiate contact with potential investors.

The rationale behind GDPLeads approach is that the generation of a limited list of well researched and segmented companies, together with a one-to-one approach with personalized sales arguments, increases the response rate and consequently the investment conversion ratios.

*Powerful Direct Marketing Campaign (e.g., 1,000) – mail, then call, follow-up by mail

**Direct Marketing campaign highly focused and selective (e.g., 50-200) – call, followed by email and telephone follow-up


GDPMeetings is our solution for organizing meetings with potential high-value investors, prior to participating in trade missions and / or attending international fairs and conferences. The one-to-one meetings we arranged allow us to maximize the impact of attending or organizing events and increasing the possibilities of establishing meaningful business relationships.

Our objective is to identify prospects that not only respond to the desired investor profile, but also have a genuine interest in investing and doing business in their region.

GDP Global not only schedules the meetings, but we make an additional effort to ensure these meetings are productive, so we provide specific advice on each planned meeting: objectives, agenda, participants, arguments and messages.

If you need support during meetings, our team of business developers will be happy to accompany you!
