examples of services:
Sales representation in Spanish
If you are new to the Spanish business scene, you should be aware of the importance of understanding the relational culture (as opposed to the transactional culture) when doing business. We will represent you in the first meetings in Spanish and English, providing valuable insights into a winning Go-To-Market strategy. Want to join in remotely? We'll bring you via a video link.
On-the-ground market intelligence
Do you need a brief basis for decision to expand into Spain? Or do you have additional questions to verify that your market assumptions for your specific sector are correct before allocating resources? Spain has 17 autonomous regions, all operating very differently.
Warm partnership Introductions
Do you want to find local partners for your brand activation? Or are you on the look-out for local investors, service providers (lawyers, pay-roll specialists) or distribution partners?
We have a solid network of trusted, English-speaking partners to choose from to ensure warm introductions to strategic partners for your long-term success in the Spanish market.
Office Space and Location Scouting
Are you considering establishing a physical Spanish office? Especially in Valencia, where we are based, we have the know-how to recommend the best office locations and/or office spaces for your needs. Should you want to open an office in Madrid, Barcelona or Malaga, we can support through our network in those cities as well.
"I joined by video link with Caroline physically present with 3 other people. Simultaneously leading the meeting in Spanish and English, she was excellent at detecting and adapting to subtle, important feedback. Thanks to her experience in Business Development and in the Spanish culture we made huge progress in tweaking our local offering, in just a one-hour meeting!"
