Valencia Startup Monopoly

4 Oct

We are in Valencia to open a new ninja company and, being foreigners, we need a NIE, a code that allows us to be registered within the spanish system.  We spent the morning being bounced from one office to another, being given only partial information and not getting the NIE in the end.  Apparently, according to a valencia policeman (at bouncing point #3),  we must be spanish residents to be able to be shareholders of a spanish company, which cannot be true, but there was no way to get the point across the police guy.

We might get a car tomorrow and drive to some smaller village with nicer policepeople, get the NIE and get the company done, the ninja way 😉
