We achieve our mission by following three basic rules every day we come to work:

Client’s needs first

We are in business because of you, and our goal is to serve – no matter what.

Objective and unbiased advice

We will review your unique situation and provide guidance based on the facts – even if the solution to your problem is not in our suite of services

Decrease wasted time

Expanding overseas is a big commitment that can be a time vortex and when it’s time to go… it’s time to go.  Everything we do is to help your business move forward.

Why We Exist

Through thousands of client experiences, we recognized that companies need a faster, less expensive, and more flexible option for entering new global markets.  More specifically, companies need an alternative to the typical response of “just set up a subsidiary and in about six months you should be able to run your first payroll”.  Taking advantage of the sharing economy of the 21st Century, you can think of us as the Airbnb of international expansion – leverage our infrastructure to get you into over 185 countries… and counting.

Velocity Global accelerated our hiring in Latin America, allowing us to secure the right resources while we were setting up our permanent presence in country. We had the employee on board in one week and the project was executed flawlessly.
