Our Mission

We simplify internationalization for you to succeed globally.

Our Vision

To disrupt the industry by simplifying and personalizing global expansion.

Get global ready 

I’ve been in your shoes. For nearly 10 years before founding Factum Global, I worked at an organization where I was tasked to launch and establish new markets abroad.

We hired consultants to help but were faced with high costs, inexperienced staff, and lack of transparency.

When expanding internationally, I knew I needed an ally, not just another consulting firm.

So in 2018, Factum Global was founded to disrupt the status quo.

With more than 100 years of combined global experience, we’ve done the hard work of mapping out the high-profit markets and connecting with vetted global partners to bring you the best.

We believe you deserve transparency, world-class service, and a partner who will value your investment.

Let us accelerate your international growth and make your global journey manageable and sustainable. Read how we’ve helped businesses just like yours!

What Our Clients Say

The Factum Global team provided a very easy-to-understand way of clarifying our goals in expanding our business beyond the U.S. They also provided a tool to evaluate how prepared we are to achieve those goals and define what needs to be put in place to improve our chances of success before we head down that path. Our enjoyable interaction with their experts was time very well spent.

Factum Global demostró ser un socio invaluable para nuestra compañía, ya que buscamos expandir las operaciones más allá de América Latina hacia los Estados Unidos. El equipo, con sede en los Estados Unidos, nos ayudó a formar una LLC y establecer una presencia legal, abrir una cuenta bancaria y proporcionan asesoramiento estratégico sobre impuestos y otros consejos de entrada al mercado. Para aquellos que requieren asistencia para establecer sus operaciones en los Estados Unidos, no busquen más. Francisco y su equipo siguen siendo nuestros asesores de confianza hoy en día.
