Our Story

As a long-standing member of the expatriate community in San Francisco, our founder Stuart Bagshaw saw foreign businesses struggling to comprehend the many nuances of operating in the US time and again.

Wouldn't it be so much easier to have a trusted partner with local knowledge and connections?

And what about those businesses that lost out on the vast opportunities of the US market without a local guide to help them navigate its complexities?

And so, American Business LEAP was born.

From humble beginnings to 10 years later, we are proud to say we have now assisted countless foreign businesses land and expand in the USA. There is not much that our team has not seen.

American Business LEAP understands that every journey into the US market is different and, as a result, we do not apply a cookie cutter approach to your business. We can assist across all US administrative, accounting, and legal matters to support your expansion. The holistic view we adopt enables us to truly partner with your business, where other companies often provide but a small subset of our services.

The reason clients enjoy working with us is because our service offering is unique, and we listen to our clients. When our clients asked us for a ‘one stop’ solution that can fully support their US expansion needs and back-office, we built a business that does exactly that.

Our dedicated and passionate team is here to help you reach your fullest potential. We look forward to understanding your US ambitions, and partnering with you to ensure your venture is as successful as possible.
