Bridgehead Ventures International is an independent consulting firm which specialises in the formation, management and development of international business expansion cluster initiatives for Scottish small and medium enterprises (SMEs). We call these Bridgehead Cluster Ventures or BCVs.
Our mission is to play a leading role in the successful internationalisation of Scottish business in the framework of the Trading Nation Export Strategy of the Scottish Government. Our vision is to significantly increase the success rate and reduce the failure rate experienced in the critical early years of international expansion ventures by combining experienced general manager, local partner and cluster management resources and expertise.
Bridgehead Ventures International is led by Hugh Fraser, a Scottish lawyer and member of the Global Scot network who has over 25 years’ experience of international business ventures. He is the Managing Partner of HFI Legal Consultancy, the former Group Head of Legal of John Wood Group PLC and the former Middle East Managing Partner for Andrews Kurth Kenyon.
