For Immediate Release


Magate Wildhorse  Consulting Announces US Operations

Canadian Strategy and International Development Consultancy expands to the U.S. with its top-notch organizational effectiveness solutions

Toronto, Canada―Known for relevant and collaborative consulting and execution solutions, the Strategy and International Development Practice announces the launch of its first U.S. operations.

The company brings its top-notch, affordable solutions across the border to New York― its US-based home. Magate Wildhorse offers a full menu of strategy and improvement solutions. Included in its service offer are corporate strategy, *performance (PMM), marketing, trade, private sector development and environment-related solutions.

“Establishing a presence in the US has been on the table for sometime now”, said Meegan Scott, founder of Magate Wildhorse. “The team―including our board and partnering associates are fired-up by the opportunity to serve US-based clients in-market in addition to virtually”.

The company is focused on doing more work in international trade, trade finance, climate finance strategy planning, and related execution support. High on its list of interest are research, design and coaching of teams in network entities who are delivering climate finance strategy solutions.
Among the solutions that the company offers to government departments, international development partners, donors, executives, NGOs and businesses are:

  • market systems development
  • measurement and reporting on results for private sector development programmes
  •  entrepreneur capacity building
  • organizational assessments
  • evaluation
  •  post implementation reviews
  • research
  • training
  • one-on-one strategic execution coaching and consulting
  • program management support
  • and corporate strategy planning.

“Hidden gem services” include the organizational effectiveness and Public-Private Partnership (PPP) combo, designed to help governments to finance critical sectors and key development initiatives that lay stuck in the funnel because of inadequate funding. Near solutions are also available to private sector entities.

Governments looking to strengthen their investment strategy plans and to grow Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) will also find tailored-to-fit and affordable options.
The “creative director and design solutions” for packaging, events and toy making is among the exciting new decade of the ’20s solutions that have been rolled out by the company. That service desk is backed by an award winning, 10-year veteran with significant experience serving Asian markets.

Commodity traders, financial institutions and law firms involved in international trade finance, development strategy and policy will gain benefits and cost savings from utilizing available backstopping services.
While the company expects the bulk of its business in New York to come from government, NGOs and organizations involved in international development, it has developed a menu of solutions for Caribbean and African diaspora organizations and their leaders. Among them are non-profit corporate strategy planning, programme planning, evaluation and learning, behavior change marketing and organizational assessments.

Prospective clients can expect an adjunct team or individual expert to help them get to root cause and problem identification or both; help with finding solutions, alternatives or recommendations that they co-develop and own. Solutions come with strategic communication for ensuring shared understanding, commitment and action that drives change and strategy delivery.

“Now that we can sit across the table in the same location, US based clients can feel more confident in our local presence and commitment to serving them”, said Scott.

Like Magate Wildhorse Ltd in Toronto, Magate Wildhorse Inc., New York is synonymous with the key words “quality, affordability, relevance, evidence-based, and results-driven”.


*Performance (PMM), organizational performance management and measurement

  1. To identify what factors, influence the decision of leaders of South African women-led management consulting businesses to sell their services abroad (Internationalize).
  2. To better understand the pathways and process they use to service markets or customers who are not residents of South Africa.
  3. To find out how local, diaspora, and other foreign networks influence and accelerate the internationalization process of small and medium sized management consulting firms in South Africa.
  4. To better understand the role of networks in increasing available financing, by-passing geographic border restrictions, firm capacity in terms of human capital, and technology.
  5. To determine what role if any networks play in helping with market and customer identification, size of earnings, and the growth trajectory of sales.
  6. From the discussions we also hope to learn about the role of other foreign and local networks in facilitating internationalization and the scaling-up of the born global firms versus born-again global firms (Those business who intended to export since inception versus those who decided to benefit from exporting at a later stage in the life of the organization).

The consultations are a part of a larger research that is intended to provide new knowledge and important insights into the process of internationalization.  It also aims to understand the impact of networks (including diaspora connections, suppliers, partners, customers, and other social connections) on the process and outcomes of internationalization among women-led management consulting firms in South Africa.

It is our hope that the findings will inform decision-making for improving the support given to entrepreneurs as well as to help women entrepreneurs to take actions for accelerating the pace of growth of their businesses.

ZA Women-led Small and Medium Sized Business Owners Invited to Participate in Research on Going Global

A random selection of women-led small to medium sized business owners and managers in South Africa will be invited to take part in a study that will provide valuable insights to inform a forthcoming Paper as well as the academic, and entrepreneur support communities on the process of internationalization among such entities in the context of a developing country.

The Paper is the first in a series that will feature, South Africa as a developing country; it will be followed by a second that is focused on Caribbean consulting businesses in the Diaspora. The Paper on South Africa aims to increase the pool of literature that is available on how and why internationalization takes place in women-led consulting businesses that fall in the category small to medium sized entities (SMEs).

Magate Wildhorse Ltd, Dr. Daniel Maposa, and Dr. Zakaria Sorgho will ensure that stakeholders have a say in framing, planning and conduct of the research. Dr. Maposa is a lecturer in the Department of Statistics and Operations Research in the School of Mathematical & Computer Sciences, Faculty of Science & Agriculture, at the University of Limpopo and Magate Wildhorse Associate. Dr. Sorgho, is a research fellow at the Department of Economics, HEC-Liège, University of Liège (Belgium), and Economist-in-Chief at African Centre for International Trade and Development – ACITD. He is also an Associate Researcher at Centre for Inter-disciplinary Studies on International Trade and Investment (CSITI), Laval University (Canada).

The findings of the research will be shared with a wide cross section of stakeholders and communities.

The study will provide insights into the role of networks and diaspora connections in the internationalization of the entities studied.  In addition, it will present a comparison of the outcomes of born global versus born-again global entities and the factors that triggered the move to serve foreign markets.

The research will be guided by Tri-Council Policy Statement: Ethical Conduct for Research Involving Humans , all data collected will be anonymized and stored in a safe and secure manner.

For more information about the study or the paper please contact lead researcher, Meegan Scott of Magate Wildhorse Ltd, at magatewildhorse@gmail.com or 1(647) 854-5323.
