Yesterday was officially my last day at Embarcadero, so today I would like to present my new company: BranchCreation (http://branchcreation.com), the goal is to provide any foreign software development company everything they need in order to setup and manage a branch here in Spain.
This business model corresponds to create captive units for foreign companies. A captive unit is a business unit of a company functioning offshore as an entity of its own while retaining the work and close operational tie ups within the parent company.
This is exactly what I did for Embarcadero, and the key to succeed was that they didn’t have to worry about any of the many things you don’t know when you open an office in a foreign country, as I was their technical contact here and I managed to find the right people to cover all aspects needed. That is: Technical, Administrative and Human Resources.
Also, the area were we are located in Spain is very competitive in term of salaries and costs, and there is a lot of talent ready to be hired. Apart from that, is a very touristic area, well communicated with lots of direct flights to most important cities in Europe.
