Business Consultants for International Opportunities


About Us

Our Story

The Direct Ascent Group was founded on the premise that international consulting does not need to be expensive and time-consuming.  We are dedicated to empowering small and mid-sized companies to expand overseas with clear, tailored, and rapid analyses.  And we are committed to helping firms analyze and monitor their foreign Supply Chain nodes without hiring expensive full-service consulting firms that will constantly try to up-sell services from here to eternity. The key to avoiding a supply-chain crisis is identifying potential choke-points and vulnerabilities before the crisis hits, so that management has ready plans to shift production and purchasing in response to threats.  The Direct Ascent Group will enable your business to expand, embrace international opportunities, and succeed.
