What are Ingrediencies that Make Aspiro Different? It comes down to a few words, which best describe what it feels like working in Aspiro. However, there is much more to it and we would be happy to discuss it with you in person.


Aspiro is a small but professional firm with about 30 employees. Everyone knows everyone, people are listened to and their opinions are considered.
We often work in small teams, consisting only of a manager/partner and consultant, occasionally engaging experts with specifics subject matter expertise, which creates plenty of opportunities to learn fast and get experiences working with senior people who know their stuff and business for tens of years.


We reward excellence and recognize when people are working hard to achieve their personal and project goals. On every step of the way, consultants receive feedback to help them improve their job performance and motivate them after an achievement. Our career coaching system enables you to set personal development goals on a biannual basis, fostering fast learning and growth.


Although being originally founded in Slovakia, Aspiro has projects all around the world, mainly the Europe, Balkans, Turkey, and Central Asia and some as far as Asia.
We often cooperate with international consultants and business partners and have international people in our internal team.


Cliché it may sound, we mean it. Delivering value is key aspect of everything we do and it keeps us in the business long term.


We are always bit unsettled thus always seeking something new. Therefore, Aspiro extended traditional definition of consulting by engaging in new business ventures where our consultants get a taste of what it takes to bring an idea from paper to real life.
