Opportunity Network Announces Partnership with BBVA
A partnership with BBVA has opened the doors for Opportunity Network to enter Peru on a large scale. The business platform will boost the Latin American market and help develop the country’s economy by connecting its CEOs and decision-makers to their counterparts around the world.
- This marks the first partnership in Peru which will enable Opportunity Network to operate at a large scale in this country
- Peruvian CEOs joining the platform are expected to bring deals spanning 50 industries, enabling them to access a total deal value of USD 263bn
- The partnership is aligned with the tech company’s purpose of creating equal access to global business opportunities by furthering Peru’s economic development
Opportunity Network is a digital platform for CEOs and investors from around the world to share and connect with business opportunities. Membership to the platform is exclusive for companies with revenues or UHNW individuals with liquid assets of more than USD 2.5 million.
This new collaboration will enable BBVA’s corporate banking clients in Peru to access to the platform’s services free of charge. The move comes after analysing the country’s expanding market opportunities. Access will allow Peruvian managers to grow their companies and make the leap into international markets.
“Our goal is to improve the way of doing business and create equal access to opportunities, especially in countries undergoing great economic development such as Peru”, said Brian Pallas, CEO of Opportunity Network.
“Entering the Peruvian market will not only substantially expand our membership base, but will also create access to unique businesses. Opportunities in Peru, currently estimated to span 50 different industries, will attract the interest of partners from around the world. Industrial and agricultural capacities especially are in high demand on our platform.”
