We have exciting news: Etnonautas was honoured with the AJE Award 2023 for Internationalisation (Premio AJE Canarias 2023 a la Internacionalización) during the 5th edition of the Canary Island AJE Awards (Premios AJE Canarias). Together with our invaluable team we were given the award as our work contributes to the growth of our economy by increasing international market activity and strengthening the brand Canary Islands and Spain outside its borders.

We have good reasons to be over the moon:

  • The award stands for our main objective since the beginning of our company: helping businesses improve their international market activity. Although we still have a long way to go, we are very proud of what we have achieved so far. We are especially happy to have helped canarian businesses establish themselves on the international market.
  • The award was given to us by PROEXCA, a company that shares the same main objective and has always supported us in our projects. Thanks to PROEXCA, numerous of our clients were able to internationalise their company, a process we helped them manouvre successfully. The recognision of our work by PROEXCA means the world to us and makes us certain that we are moving in the right direction.
