MNE Team Concept

Title: MNE Concept

1. Name of Imaginary Company: FIX SMARTPHONE NOW

2. Business Model (How will you operate the company and be profiable?)

We focus on repairs of all major smartphone brands. We do not sell any products or accessories, only

smartphone repair services with a 24-hour turnaround time. We stock the most common repair parts

for each major brand. Our shops are small to keep rental costs down, but each contains state-of-art

smartphone diagnostics equipment and trained technicians. We strive to attract and serve walk-in

traffic. Each smartphone repair service is priced based on two components, a basic diagnostic charge

to determine what is wrong with the smartphone and second the cost of the repair.

3. Home Country and Background: (Background of the company in its home country, the U.S.)

We started FIX SMART PHONE NOW in a small repair shop in a San Jose, CA shopping center in

2008 when smartphones were reaching a strong period of growth and some customers were wanting to

repair their existing smartphones rather than upgrade to the next more expensive model. We found this

to be a growing market niche. The company experienced rapid growth in the larger Bay Area,

including Sacramento and expanded to Los Angeles and San Diego. Within 5 years we had repair

shops in all major cities in the U.S. with annual sales of over $30 million and healthy profits. This

level of financial success has given us the resources and experience to explore expansion of the

company by setting up operations in another country. Over the last 3 three years we have been

evaluating various countries for a Foreign Direct Investment, evaluating the benefits, costs, and risks

of each one.

4. Host Country and Rationale

We have decided on Turkey as our host country and plan to start our first FIX SMARTPHONE NOW

shop in Istanbul, the capital of Turkey with a population of over 15 million citizens. Here are our

reasons for selection of Turkey as our host country:

a) Imbedded in the ethic and culture of our company is respect for all people. This has been

ingrained in us from our beginning in Silicon Valley where over 42% of people are born in

another country. We feel very comfortable in adjusting to a country’s culture and its many

subcultures, in particular in Turkey that has a largely Islamic religion and culture.

b) Our costs for skilled technician labor and shop rental space will be significantly lower in

Turkey than in many other countries.

c) Many U.S. companies and those of other Western countries shy away from Islamic countries,

like Turkey for fear of not understanding the culture or being faced with anti-American

sentiments. We are confident we can adapt our business practices to the largely Islamic culture

in Turkey and thus have a first-mover advantage, if not an early mover advantage in the

rapidly growing smartphone repair market.

d) While Turkey is largely an Islamic country, it has many characteristics of Western Capitalism

and tends to welcome entrepreneurial enterprises.

e) Finally, Turkey has applied for membership in the European Union but has been denied entry

over human rights concerns. We believe that the odds are good that over the next several years

that Turkey will make the necessary reforms and be allowed entry into the European Union,

thus opening up a huge market for FIX SMARTPHONE NOW.

5. What the team intends to learn from its project.

None of the members of the team have ever lived in or visited Turkey. This project is an opportunity

for us to both learn about the rich heritage and culture of Turkey but also how to establish and operate

a U.S. company in an Islamic country whose culture straddles both the East and the West.
