Deel took over Finland with their signature deel speed


Deel helps companies hire anyone in a new country in minutes and automate onboarding, payroll, and compliance. We at Bay Area helped Deel launch their operations in Finland. As the global phenomena of talent shortage and remote work are no strangers to us in the Nordics either, we loved to be able to introduce Deel’s solution and local team to the Finnish startup ecosystem.


Our interesting guest speakers, Finland’s leading talent specialists Noora Heikkinen (, Tiia Rapeli, (RELEX Solutions) and Noora Zein ( shared their stories and know-how on how to manage growth strategically when entering brand new markets and growing your team fast in a webinar, organized together with Maria 01.

After work event

On the day of the webinar, we also organized an after work event at Maria 01. During the event, fellow startup entrepreneurs, investors and other guests were invited to test their driving skills on a rally simulator and overall enjoy the mingle and snacks and drinks.


San Francisco Agency made sure Deel’s interesting story got visibility, and pitched founder & CEO Alex Bouaziz’s interview to Kauppalehti, the leading business newspaper in Finland.


The launch events, supported by social media marketing, PR by San Francisco Agency, and partnership activities with Maria 01, was a great start to Deel’s operations in Finland. Deel’s existing and future clients now know who to turn to, and we will be sure to see more of speedy activities in other events. The Kauppalehti article shared Deel’s story to a larger audience.

“We help people hire anyone, anywhere. But we don’t work with any partner, anywhere. Our launch goal was to take over the Finnish market with a bang and to get known by the local startup and growth ecosystem – and this really happened.

We are happy we chose to work with the Bay Area network and San Francisco Agency with our Finnish launch. And the journey has only just begun,” said Daniel Eisenberg, Head of Expansion for Northern, Central & Eastern Europe, Deel.
