After 5 years with SOLA as an Incubatee, the time came for me to be transferred to a local company. A huge thank you to the entire team at SOLA; it was a very worthwhile journey. Thanks for your guidance, support, and cooperation. SOLA was like a home for me, and everyone was very cooperative in helping me make the journey from Dubai to the UK.

As a candidate, I would highly recommend the SOLA Incubator. I felt extremely supported by the team at SOLA when I was the first "boots on the ground" at Sendbird UK and the person tasked with the growth and day-to-day management of the EMEA revenue function. Incubation gave me the security of a UK employer: a UK employment contract, payroll processing, benefits and HR support.

The SOLA team has been extremely responsive to me and my employees. I have appreciated how thorough and how committed you are to helping make the employee experience extremely positive. Your knowledge has helped us to be more competitive in the UK, and we can now offer the team brand new insurance plans.

SOLA represented Sendbird in the best light possible, which has had a great return on the calibre of candidates. Those individuals have been wonderful hires. Without reservation, I would highly recommend working with SOLA Incubator.

How does SOLAarc Incubator work?

Our consultants draw on their deep knowledge of local employment landscapes and extensive networks to identify and engage top local talent.

  • We establish a “virtual subsidiary" for you, with locally compliant employment contracts and benefit structures to employ that talent. Those new hires are welcomed into an environment that mirrors your own and are fully supported by our team.

  • The SOLAarc Incubator differs from traditional EoR/PEO services in that it creates a contractual trust between you and SOLA. Your employees and assets are held temporarily in trust for you and wholly transferred to you when you are ready to set up your own entity. Your IP is automatically transmitted to you continuously throughout the incubation. You avoid the risks of co-employment and the costs of having a local subsidiary while preserving all the value.

  • It is an end-to-end solution tailored precisely to your needs for as long as you choose before setting up on your own.
