 "Helping Businesses Achieve                Their Greatest Potential"         

20/20 Development Company LLC has been serving the needs of the global community since 1997.  During that time, 20/20DC has handled products and services as diverse as assisting OSIM a global leading retailer entering the USA market to stainless steel manufacturers and rental companies from Europe, food processors from Peru to Mongolia, fashions and household furnishings from Kyrgyzstan, Serbia and Guatemala and wines from Moldova, Georgia and now Kazakhstan!
 

Our network includes affiliates in the USA, Asia, South America, Africa, Central Asia, Eastern Europe and the EU.  The affiliates in each region are proven entrepreneurs with experience in developing businesses, marketing brands, and helping companies achieve their greatest potential. 

 
With extensive international entrepreneurial experience, Jim Krigbaum leads 20/20DC into the future and brings top quality products and services to our customers worldwide.  The Team Members of 20/20DC have proven track records of delivering sales and establishing long-term business relationships for the businesses that we work with.   

20/20DC has had considerable success in international brand development and brand equity enhancement for brands sold in North America, Europe, Asian and South America. 20/20 continues to lead manufacturers and processors in developing and executing their marketing plan in the world economy.

Realizing that there is no supply chain without demand the 20/20DC team works with demand driven initiatives to help our customers produce the product that they can sell.  20/20DC assists companies in expanding their business through providing assistance at both the macro and micro levels.  Through a market review and demand analysis (macro) coupled with a review of the companies resources and limitations (micro) 20/20DC assists the company in identifying viable markets that best apply their resources to maximize their profits. 

Starting with identifying the products to be produced (demand driven) based upon competitive and comparative analysis, we then work with our technical team of process engineers, food scientists, and experienced food process plant Management and Executives to ensure that the quality of product produced meets the market. 

We then utilize a full complement of marketing tools including face-to-face buyers and sellers missions, trade shows and web based marketing tools to link buyers and sellers together.

A common element in many of our development programs is the integration of businesses into the program at the start of the process to ensure that what is produced is what can be sold!
In May of 2017 20/20DC celebrates our 20th year of serving the business needs of our clients. 

We have spent 20 years helping businesses globally to identify opportunities and convert them to revenue.
