Among the main benefits of the island are tax incentives, connectivity, technological infrastructures, public co-investment instruments, digital transition in strategic sectors, quality and cost of living.

In addition, it specifies the support offered by the SPEGC to facilitate entrepreneurship and development business, which consists of the Business Support Service (SAE), softlanding support, financing possibilities, access to talent and tailored training programs, as well as work offices.

The ‘ICT Talent Document’ manages to show the competitive profile of the island on two pages, through four blocks:

Where to look for the right talent. Access to free search tools is provided, such as the ‘Talento Gran Canaria’ network, which has more than 1,100 professionals working abroad willing to return to the island. You may also consult the ‘Best in Gran Canaria’ talent platform, which analyzes more than 11,500 professional profiles; online search engines or Human Resources agencies specialized in the local market.

Attracting international talent. The SPEGC also has a ‘Moving to Gran Canaria. The complete relocation guide’, which emphasizes the quality of life on the island and provides all the information required for each stage of the landing process, with the objective of attracting future employees.

AD-HOC training. Customized training is another of the advantages that companies can benefit from when starting to operate from Gran Canaria, as the SPEGC has flexible training programmes on demand, with the possibility of internships and with no-hire commitment, fully financed.

How to finance your talent development. There are both national and regional tax incentives, as well as a higher deduction than in the rest of Spain for job creation and finally, the SPEGC’s own tools such as the ‘Tecnova2’ internship programme.

With this type of strategic documentation, the SPEGC continues with its strong commitment to keep companies and entrepreneurs constantly updated on the advantages of setting up in Gran Canaria, and the most convenient operational formulas to enjoy a unique environment, which is becoming the ideal place to invest in Europe.
