DIVERSA has been selected under the ICEX NEXT program on a competitive basis amongst more than 150 Spanish SMEs, and here we tell you how this opportunity could help us be more competitive internationally.


What is ICEX NEXT?


The Foreign Trade Institute (ICEX), belonging to the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Tourism of the Government of Spain, aims to promote the internationalization of Spanish companies and foreign investment, and so it has launched the ICEX NEXT 2022 Internationalization Program.

Under this framework, Spanish SMEs may be able to internationalize their business, increase their turnover abroad, diversify their business risk, and improve their global competitiveness.

For this, the ICEX NEXT program:

  • Offers the company specialized advice through expert consultants for the development of its overseas strategy and improvement of its international competitiveness.
  • Subsidizes certain expenses derived from the design and implementation of the international strategy.


Why has DIVERSA been selected?


There are two main reasons why we have been granted this chance:

  1. First, DIVERSA meets the requirements needed: we are a technology-based startup that has its own brand and products.
  2. Last, but crucial, at DIVERSA we have the vocation to consolidate our presence in foreign markets.


Next steps


Having signed the acceptance contract on July 29, our next goal is to explore the US market to establish a subsidiary and start business activities there.

We know US is a key market, but tough as well. That is why, to accomplish this objective, we have Maria José Borreguero Fígols, consultant at Arian International Projects in Barcelona, with more than 20 years experience in the internationalization of companies.


DIVERSA continually strives to provide trusted solutions for research and pharma. We are committed to becoming the reference company for drug delivery and pharmaceutical nanotechnology!
