Naturally curious to discover new worlds and business cultures, Dr. Andrea Volpe began to specialize in internationalization early in his career. He recognized very quickly that many companies fail or encounter difficulties when expanding overseas due to – among many reasons – a lack of planning, especially in markets where a deep knowledge of the economic, fiscal and legal environment is needed.

In 2014, he partnered with other European professionals – all of whom had many years of experience assisting companies internationally – to create the Eurolink Geie network.
