The Meridian 74 Group LLC is an internationalization services startup based in the United States and Portugal that empowers businesses to go global by guiding their entry into foreign markets.
We specialize in matching our clients with export, expansion, manufacturing, and outsourcing opportunities and partners within our target markets.

The 74th meridian west passes through New York City, the place where M74's four founders grew up together—hence our company's name.
