for global startups and investors
Expand To Spain launched in May of 2018. The name was and is still meant to be broad enough to pivot our way into a good fit with what YOU, reading this, would like to get support with.
The team is uniquely placed to offer on-the ground advice, providing a sounding board for global investors and global startup founders, as input to an investment thesis or go-to-market strategy, to avoid unnecessary mistakes costing money and valuable time.
The pricing starts from €70/hour after a first complimentary, 30 minute, introductory call.
Just send us an email and we'll set it up.
In terms of the actual landing process, our experience is that you prefer DIY, "Do It Yourself", either through trial and error and/or using the support and connections from your investors, should they have presence and/or a great network in Spain.
Should you still want operational support to get a softer landing in Spain, we offer services for the basics like setting up a legal entity and relevant permits, Employer of Record (EOR), finding office space, Recruiting, Legal advice specialized in startups, through our trusted affiliates across Spain.
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 support in introducing you to the relevant people and/or represent you in the first meetings in Spanish and English, providing valuable insights into a winning Go-To-Market strategy. Sad to miss out on the meeting dynamics? Don't worry, we'll bring you via a video link.
Do you need a brief basis for decision to expand into Spain? Or do you have additional questions such as the market rules for your specific sector? To verify that your market assumptions are correct before allocating resources. And remember, Spain has 17 autonomous regions, all operating differently.
As an international startup, do you want to find local partners for your brand activation? Or are you on the look-out for local investors, service providers or distribution partners?
As a global investor, would you like to get first dibs on joining a national investor in investing in growing, under-the-radar Spanish startups?
We will identify and introduce you to strategic partners matching your descriptions and needs, for long-term success in the Spanish market.
"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 positive and negative 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!"
