“Established in Monaco since early 2016, Santé Natura specialises mainly in the sale of online “premium” natural health products for athletes, STC NUTRITION with AFNOR standard anti-doping NF V94-001 certification. More than 40% of our turnover is generated in Europe as far as Russia, and being here in Monaco is a real plus, as we have noticed through our customer satisfaction questionnaires that Monaco is not only world-renowned but has a very strong image of conscientiousness, confidence and quality. We have also had the opportunity to discover all the MEB team’s initiatives to promote companies based in Monaco, which confirmed we had made the right decision to come here, as well as boosting our premium image with customers.”
Hugh Wade-Jones, Managing Director
“When I looked to expand my business internationally we considered a number of locations but Monaco proved the best in terms of providing access to different markets, not just European, the quality of life and also the overall ‘can do’ business mindset. Invest Monaco were extremely helpful in connecting us to the right people and helping us understand both how to set up and operate in the Principality. I would strongly urge any businesses considering Monaco to speak to Justin and the team.”
Aubéry Audion, CEO
“Monaco has become a key destination in the world and with each passing day is further consolidating its position as a luxury destination. It was obvious to me the Richard Mille firm needed to be associated with it. Through our international events, particularly the Formula 1 Grand Prix, Monaco is an ideal synergy for the brand’s DNA. Precision engineering, technical excellence, Richard Mille represents one of the biggest names in watchmaking. Invest Monaco has contributed to the success of Richard Mille Monaco’s development by introducing synergies / collaborations from the very heart of the business community and international players here in the Principality.”

Davide Nicosia, Owner
As an international, strategic and creative branding and design agency NiCE2 was looking for a place to expand to in Europe. We have always preferred cosmopolitan and international locations to operate like New York and Singapore. When it came to choose between different countries and cities in Europe the
choice was not easy.
Monaco convinced us in multiple ways. Not only was the interaction with government agencies like Invest Monaco easy, friendly, uncomplicated and professional but also quick and bespoken to our needs. From first contact with the “Consulate de Monaco” in Singapore followed by Invest Monaco and “Monaco Welcome” the process to set up an entity was supported and guided. We could not have expected a more helpful welcome.
Monaco as a business location is special. It offers us a reliable and cosmopolitan environment to operate and serve our clients like “Dolce&Gabbana”, “Montblanc” and now “Ferrero”. The compactness of the city state and its supporting activities is ideal for networking.
Having access to decision makers in a meaningful and direct way is unparalleled in Europe.
