What do we consider an IT activity?
Nowadays, most businesses require IT to support their operations to some extent. IT is everywhere: from obvious needs such as having a website or using some software, to Internet of Things, Big Data Management, RFID, Supply Chain, or Systematizing Operations.
For example, if you are looking to build an eCommerce website, we could direct you to associated software houses, but we won't actually take the project.
On the other hand, if you or your company is interested in exploring the best way to optimize its processes, or reach international markets, or have an online presence, we will gladly present you a comprehensive consulting proposal. Usually, our consulting engagements begin with discovering cost-effective niches and innovation opportunities; defining strategies and goals; developing and implementing software (only if required); evaluating results; and of course, celebrating the accomplishments with you.
Currently, Explogic has designed, invested-on and built several other Startups within different industries and countries, but all of them with an important technological core.
We believe in global business ventures, with difficult replicability and high added values for the end users. Our incubation program presents two segments:
- Joint-Ventures: Phase 1 and Phase 2 Startups that you may present us to evaluate and build it together.
- Accelerator: Phase 3 Startups owned by Explogic that may open for private investors.
"Our industry does not respect tradition,
it only respects innovation."

E = Q x A
This is our golden rule: The success of a consulting engagement (E) is the result of the Quality (Q) of deliverables, times the Client's Acceptance or Buy in (A).
We believe that the key for successful consulting relies on collaborative work between our clients and our consulting team. If we are able to understand our client's needs and goals, we will be able to design solutions that take her or him to where they want to be. Likewise, if our client is able to understand and learn how we got from point A to point B, then success will be sustained.
"It's so much easier to suggest solutions when
you don't know too much about the problem."
