Most American companies expanding abroad for the first time aim for the low-hanging fruit—Canada or the U.K., for instance. TekScape’s first international client was based in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. When David Smith found out the United Nations had funding to build its presence in the Congo and required IT services, Smith leapt at the opportunity. Now, TekScape has an office there and has completed projects in more than 20 other countries.
