The DRIVE INML project

DRIVE INML is a European project within the Interreg POCTEFA Programme designed to “Improve the competitiveness of companies located in cross-border areas through international niche market leadership”.

POCTEFA-Actua

The purpose of POCTEFA is to strengthen the economic and social integration of the Spain-France-Andorra border area. It focuses on the development of cross-border economic, social and environmental activities through joint strategies for a sustainable territorial development.

The DRIVE INML Project aims to identify companies that are “hidden champions”, or in other words, companies that are leaders of their market niche but aren’t focused on international markets despite having great potential. There is currently no specific aid for these companies, therefore the project will develop a new cross-border service aimed at this type of companies and focused on training, promoting and internationalizing them.

This service will make it easier for companies to connect with collaborators that can result in commercial agreements and improve their competitiveness. DRIVE INML will take place between 1 January 2020 and 30 April 2022.

A consortium driven by the Agency for Business Competitiveness, ACCIÓ, including Beaz, BIC Crescendo and Andorra Business.

We decided to open the clinic in Andorra because many of the Moto GP and Superbike riders that we advise live here, such as Fabio Quartararo and Pol Espargaró. Also because there are quite a few elite athletes living in the country. Andorra Business helped us for the launching of the business by providing us information on how to set up the company in the Principality.

Commencal

Andorra is one of the best places in the world to set up the design, marketing, conception and engineering part of a company. Andorra Business helps us to internationalize our company with its connections/contacts to enter markets where it is more complicated to settle.

Max Commencal, CEO of Commencal
Gerard Maravella

Andorra is an ideal place to work and establish a company. It is a charming and family-friendly country, with spectacular natural surroundings and great tranquility, where many business opportunities arise and where, moreover, it is very easy to solve all the problems that arise.

Gerard Marabella, CEO of Balize
Farmàcia Meritxell

Having a business in Andorra does not only mean having tax benefits. It is also easier on a bureaucratic level and to project yourself internationally. Andorra Business helped me in precisely this process, making my products known outside the Principality.

Nice Fruit

Andorra has a variety of advantages we took into account when we decided to establish the company in the country such as security, legislation and political stability. And after having done so, I was surprised by how much people love living in Andorra. It provides a very high quality of life.

José María Roger, President - Nice Fruit

The decision to create a company in Andorra came not only because of the tax facilities, but above all because of the high quality of life and the presence of talented young people. NP Technology wants to grow in the world, expanding its presence in other countries, and Andorra Business has played a key role helping us in our internationalization process.

Andorra is a perfect place to develop and test all our innovations, to carry out comprehensive country pilots tests and to generate business alliances. The sports environment is impressive, especially because a large number of athletes live there and the country prioritizes the sector.

We chose to come to Andorra afer the Covid pandemic noting the possibility to set up an audiovisual production and dubbing studio in the country, enabling us to working internationally. In addition, living in Andorra is wonderful for our children because of the environment and the great safety.

Fremindtronic

We came to Andorra because we love mountains, because Spain and France were nearby, and especially because of the exceptional security framework that the Principality offers. We are very happy to continue with the support of Andorra Business, since thanks to them we have been able to establish many commercial links with international companies.

We have chosen to establish our company in Andorra due to its privileged natural characteristics that make it an emblematic country, its security, the moderate tax pressure it offers, and our belief in its strong potential to become a European healthcare hub.
