Business development

Business development is about achieving growth by harnessing opportunities and possibilities beyond existing, familiar frameworks. It includes all activities aimed at discovering and realising new business opportunities. The goal of business development is to create sustainable value for the long term. All this must be based on a mission, vision and carefully considered business strategy.

Business developer brings together unique characteristics

Business developers excel in connecting an organisation’s knowledge and (technological) lead with demand and needs in the market – and not just existing markets, but particularly new, currently unknown markets and applications. In practice, marketing and sales often focus on the short-term activities of current or future customers. In contrast, business development activities focus much more on the long term. Axa Novi is acutely aware of the value of business development for your organisation, which makes us a valuable sparring partner. We can do this because we can see your organisation, its qualities and (future) market demands from a different perspective.
