Amitel International


You have seen the stories on the Web and in the business news; Apple, Google, Facebook, eBay, Amazon and many more with their overseas businesses headquartered in Ireland. Stories like this have you wondering, “Should my company go Global? We barely have the resources and budget to serve Canada and the U.S. !”

“Large companies can exploit the potential of international markets, we just can’t afford that!” At Amitel we say “You can’t afford not to!”  And we can show you how.

Often the first step in expanding your company’s reach into foreign markets means Europe. The European Union (EU) is a huge single market, larger than the US made up of 28 countries representing 500 Million people. Europe as a continent has 50 countries with a total population of 740 Million. Ireland is the ideal place to locate to export to Europe and the EU.

Ireland has a highly attractive high tech environment, a young, educated and innovative workforce and a government with a business friendly tax regime including a low corporate tax rate (12.5%), extensive double taxation agreements (including with Canada and the United Sates) and very attractive grants and financing incentives.

Amitel International is here to help you further your company’s growth by expanding overseas via Ireland & EMEA (Europe, Middle East & Africa). We are based in Ireland and Canada. Our main area of focus is Consulting and management support services such as assisting in setting up and on an interim or permanent basis, acting on-behalf of your European headquarters for business development, sales and marketing, customer support and administration to the CIT (Communications & Information Technology) sectors, with a clinical focus on SME’s and High Potential Start-ups and understanding your Buying/Selling objectives, challenges & opportunities. We have experience in navigating through government and can assist you in sourcing appropriate professionals for legal and accounting advice. Amitel can help recruit qualified professionals such as software developers and project managers without your company having to take on expensive cross Atlantic travel and expenses. Based on your type of business, funding grants may be available for R&D, new hires, High Potential Start-up Funding (HPSU) and tailored financial arrangements to meet your unique value proposition and business requirements.
