THE CHALLENGE

With 15 campuses in France and many international partnerships, Epitech recently decided to take its presence to the next level. Under an ambitious internationalization strategy, Epitech looked to extend its reach and venture outside of France. The mission? Take first-class IT education to Spain, and eventually, Germany.

To smoothly setup its international presence, Epitech knew that a well-prepared approach would be vital. To continue providing the level of education it was famous for, Epitech looked for a trustworthy partner to help them expand.

More specifically, Epitech needed a partner to take care of all managerial and administrative obligations in going overseas. In addition to set-up requirements, Epitech sought ongoing support. Whether it be solving a HR concern, or translating a text to a new language; Epitech needed a fully-capable business partner.

OUR SOLUTION

To help Epitech expand internationally, our first priority was to organize a smooth set-up process. Our assistance ranged from opening a local bank account, to setting up various types of insurance.

This set-up process went hand-in-hand with our HR consulting service, which ensured that Epitech was fully compliant in going overseas. We took care of aspects such as sourcing appropriate industrial agreements and drafting employee contracts.

Epitech’s HR needs were far from minor. As such, we also implemented a global HR system for their 400 employees.

We also assisted Epitech to develop their local network and be an active player in the local eco-system collaborating with partners such as French Tech Barcelona, Toulouse Business School (specializing in management) and L’Idem (specializing in design).

Our partnership with Epitech saw them kick-start abroad with ease. As we took care of all administrative and compliance concerns, Epitech was able to focus on the business expansion at hand.

With the ambitious project to create networks of multidisciplinary teams of IT and Design experts as well as Project Managers, Epitech continues to respond to the future talent needs in Spain and Internationally.

Equipped with our ongoing support, Epitech is now looking forwards to expanding to Germany with a presence in Berlin on the horizon.
