Meet the team behind Arriber
Our team of consultants realizes your wishes and needs before expansion, during execution, and after establishment.
We believe that Danish companies should expand into more international markets.
It is a complex process that we want to make easy and tangible. We have spent time examining the issues of international expansion.
The result was that Danish companies often fail in international markets because they need to sufficiently familiarized themselves with the culture, language, and the way things are done in a given market.
Cultural and language barriers often jeopardize access and networking in a new market.
“Your network is your net worth.”
We have chosen to take up the challenge. Therefore, we have spent a lot of time improving our skills in internationalization for the Spanish and German markets.
We speak the local language, understand the local culture, and have for several years built up a network that can be your access to Germany or Spain.
Specifically, we act as your company's extended arm for a faster and better market entry.
The name Arriber comes from the Spanish word "Arriba," which means up – and this is precisely the direction we set for your business to grow internationally.
