Reasons to do Business in Spain

Along with the monetary and policy-based incentives to open a startup in the country, Spain also has two massive markets that are primed and proven to achieve success for companies. According to EU Startups, Barcelona is ranked as the fifth largest startup hub in Europe. Madrid is not far behind as the seventh-best on the list. These locations are critical bases for startup success, but also, due to the RENACE program, startups can enlist workers from other areas of Spain that may be better specialized for the work they need to be done without having to leave the hubs of Barcelona and Madrid. Our corporate lawyers in Spain can help you with any request.
