Dog Vivant is born from the need for centralized, guaranteed and updated information to move with dogs on trips and day plans. They believe in the need forspecializedservices andpartnersin this segment fordog-friendly businesses, destinations and other tourism agents.
The company already has more than 25,000 registered with dogs and more than 1,000 active canine and dog-friendly business clients. All of them can find, through the web or mobile app, both museums and bars, as hotels, restaurants and other activities in which dogs are not only accepted, but also welcome .
This last point is a widespread demand among those who opt for the company of a pet and, in this case, a dog, as they generally have to deal with restrictions and prohibitions of all kinds. Luckily the initiative of integration to the dog in the city is booming, and that is why every day Dog Vivant adds new dog-friendly and canine businesses, since more than 84% of people with dogs do, at least , one trip a year with your pet.
In addition, 42% of these people refuse to make any type of trip that does not include their dog. However, this does not happen only in relation to travel and getaways, but more than 50% frequent a bar or restaurant with your pet, and almost 70% try to include you in all your plans as long as the dog is not uncomfortable .
In this way, Dog Vivant stands for dog travelers not as a business directory, but as a certification with proven and updated information from really dog-friendly sites . On the other hand, for these trusted businesses, the Dog Vivant certification offers a complete ecosystem of services ranging from the visibility and qualified recruitment of dog adventurers (always knowing their dog access rules, opinions from third parties and nearby attractions), to customer experience and reputation management in a segment in full revolution.
However, it should be added that the reception by these businesses is good, since the annual certification renewal rate is close to 80% in a sector as volatile as hospitality and tourism. The company, which has the support of Metxa, has just closed a round for an amount of € 300,000, after a presemilla round of € 100,000, months after its foundation (2016).

Global Exchange is a multinational company specialised in foreign currency exchange services, with over 20 years of experience. They are present in more than 57 International Airports in 21 countries and 5 continents, and in several hotel resorts and at high street locations.
Day after day they seek excellence in their Customer service and in their relationships with the Airport Operators they work with. Global Exchange operates in the currency exchange sector since 1996.
Their company was founded in Spain, in Fuentes de Oñoro (Salamanca), a border town on the frontier with Portugal, where the owners of the company developed different tourist-oriented businesses. One of the tourists’ demands at the time was currency exchange (mostly Spanish Pesetas, French Francs and Portuguese Escudos), and so their currency exchange services began.
Soon this activity was expanded to other towns on the Portuguese border and great tourist attractions, but with the arrival of the euro and the subsequent disappearance of currency exchange among European citizens their company had to change its strategy. The euro set for their company the great challenge of their international expansion, first to Argentina in 2001.
The Global Exchange Group is currently involved in a very ambitious strategic plan for 2017-2021, when they intend to expand from their current 21 countries to more than 40, and to triple the size of their company in the next few years. Apart from this numeric challenge, their company is currently undergoing an important redefinition of its internal processes, its offer of services and products, and exploring new lines of business (via telephone, internet, etc.)..
