Why do business in Malaga?

Start your business in Spain

The perfect work-life balance

With clear blue skies nearly every day, you can have your client meeting on a terrace, go for a run in the afternoon, or sit in a trendy café along the boulevard as a digital nomad with your laptop. In Malaga, you spend a lot of time outdoors, and all that vitamin D keeps both your body and mind healthy. Cycling, golfing, or practising yoga on the beach are all possible year-round. Don't forget to play a game of 'padel' after work, one of the most popular sports in this region. Working in Malaga... you'll never want to go back to that 9-to-5 office job.

A prime location in Europe

Malaga is strategically located within Europe, with the third largest international airport in Spain, excellent infrastructure, and abundant business facilities such as the Innovation Campus and the Technology Park. Several major urban development projects are planned for Malaga from 2023, including the logistics parks for Ikea and Amazon. Additionally, there is access to fast and reliable internet, affordable office space, and plenty of coworking spaces for digital nomads. That's why more and more companies and entrepreneurs see Malaga as the perfect place to establish themselves.

An international vibe

Malaga is home to residents and entrepreneurs from all over the world, and you can immediately feel the vibrant, international atmosphere. Many expats cite the positive vibe as a significant reason for choosing Malaga. Within a short time, you'll build a new network within your industry, and Match Better Malaga can help you establish the right connections.

Great for startups

Malaga is a city that nurtures startups, offering the perfect environment and support systems that place entrepreneurs at the centre. Through the public initiative Promalaga, the city has also promoted a municipal network of 14 incubation centres, the first of which opened in 1997, supporting around 200 companies today.
