Accessing the US Market
We work with businesses that have an ambition to trade internationally. This support is delivered through the Enterprise & Invest Unit of Mayo County Council, in partnership with the Littus programme based in Philadelphia, USA.
Littus, from the Latin for “landing place”, is a services-based soft landing platform supporting companies entering the US market.
Littus facilitates connection with the specialty service providers, sales channel partners, and prospects needed to efficiently scale up a business’ US operations.
The programme gives international companies (and companies thinking of expanding internationally) the advantage of leveraging local expertise across all necessary areas of infrastructure to efficiently establish and grow their business in their target markets.
