Among the main reasons executives give up entering foreign markets is due to a single factor: cultural diferences. For over 40 years, the Lemes Family has been at the forefront of diplomacy and business intermediation for companies and families in North and Latin America.

Founded in Canada, Hopewell is formed by a team of consultants with proven experience in international business and diplomacy. The founder of the company is a former U.S. Department of Commerce Business Development Specialist, who received four Honor Awards for Innovation and Business Excellence. He was also a Commercial Officer of the Canadian Trade Commission in Brazil, with wide experience in business in North and South America, focused in high technologies. One of our major accomplishments has been assisting the Brazilian Government (Ministry of Health) in studying the U.S. health/regulatory system to form ANVISA - Brazilian Health Vigilance Agency, a FDA-like agency.

Our Mission

Since its beginnings our mission has been based on the practical notion of extending a bridge between North and South America for companies and individuals, trading products and technologies, seeking investment opportunities and education at all levels, with quality. By working with government, entrepreneur and education institutions we carry this mission on a daily basis as part of our work, helping clients to successfully strengthen and grow their businesses through sustainable sales, financial knowledge and job creation. We exist to bring understanding and prosperity for all concerned in our company and clients. Diplomacy and employing the best trade practices forms the basis of our work to bring prosperity to our clients and our company, according preferences, values, and goals.

Our Plan

We strive to serve those seeking better education, and better work envinronment by providing them with the best products and technology both in North and South America, primarily from our base in Texas. We continue to follow the Valuable Final Product (VFP)concept: "Our Consultant determines whether the Client has any chances in obtaining what he/she wants. If the Consultant determines that he/she will be able to meet the Client's expectations, and DELIVER in a timely manner, then he can honestly ask for the Client's fees/payment, usually a retainer and/or Success Fee. The Client gives the Consultant trust and his commitment (even advanced payment, if agreeable), and the Consultant gives in return his/her best attention, hard work, responsible commitment, RESULTS, and then a VFP was exchanged. Simple as that".

Our Vision

To attain our goals we rely on ETHICAL individuals and companies. Ethics as defined by the American Philosopher, L. Ron Hubbard: "Ethics actually consists of rationality toward the highest level of survival for the individual, the future race, the group [family, business, etc], Mankind, Nature and the other dynamics of Existence taken up collectively. Ethics are reason". By keeping this in mind, we can benefit Humanity, while seeking progress for our company, its members and our valuable clients. We respect people, value diversity and are committed to equality.

Our Services

We strive to give our clients the best attention, with Innovation, Integrity, Quality, Excellence and Accountability, with superior performance in our communications across cultures, paying attention to economic and technical standards, regulatory processes and final successful delivery to clients.
