Welcome our new hc/ Connect & Grow Members

Get to know the entrepreneurs who joined our conscious business community this month!

The hc/ Connect & Grow Business Community is growing and we are very happy to welcome new members every month and present them to the community.

At hc/ Connect & Grow we are striving to bring like-minded entrepreneurs together to network, prosper and thrive in their personal and professional life. It’s often not talked about enough, but having a strong network of like-minded connections is perhaps the best way to take root on the island.

If you are not yet a member and would like to join this diverse group of cosmopolitan business professionals, you can apply here.

Get to know our new members below and find out why they came to Mallorca and joined hc/ Connect & Grow:

Paul Braun, Paul Braun Media

“Hello, I am Paul and I recently started my business for IT service and consulting. If a well-functioning IT infrastructure is important for your business, I would be happy to assist you.

Originally from Germany, we came to Mallorca for many reasons. The special light of Mallorca serves as a source of inspiration for us. What we like most is that island life is full of positive vibes and peacefulness.

I am looking forward to be part of a supportive network, share knowledge and have a good time at hc/ Connect & Grow.”

David Deacon, Housing Disrepair Surveys – HDS

“I’m David, originally from the UK. An adventurous soul at heart, I’m a self-professed “speed freak” and petrolhead. I enjoy many hobbies, from go-karting to skiing (anything that goes fast).  My heart belongs on the water (I’ve notched up a few world records along the way).  I enjoy great food and company in wonderful settings so it’s no wonder that Mallorca has become my ideal haven.  As for my guiding principle, it’s straightforward: “Happy wife, happy life.”

I am a Chartered Surveyor “by profession” and together with my wife Wendy, run 2 businesses in the UK; a nationwide surveying practice and a property investment portfolio.  We are interested in exploring real estate opportunities in Mallorca and the possibility of extending our surveying services on the island.

Our initial visits in 2013 were sailing holidays with friends. Gradually, we explored the island’s interior and were captivated by the Soller Valley. Mallorca has a breath-taking blend of sea and mountains. It offers endless activities and a warm, welcoming culture.
We are delighted with our decision to move here and are enjoying every element of settling into island life.

Being a member of hc/ Connect & Grow I am looking forward to making new friendships, sharing experiences, and building a community together.”

Wendy Deacon, Housing Disrepair Surveys – HDS

“ I’m Wendy, originally from the UK. I am committed to living a healthy, happy, and enriched life on this enchanting island. I love adventures, travel, creativity, learning, good food and, above all, great company.

My husband, David and I, run two businesses in the U.K; a surveying practice and a property investment company.  I am particularly enthusiastic about empowering women and motivating young mothers to reignite their careers.

We first set foot on the island in 2013 for sailing holidays. As we ventured further inland, we fell for the bohemian allure of the Soller Valley; an abundance of nature’s beauty, enchanting villages and the friendliest of locals. We love to roam the island by land or sea, uncovering hidden calas, picturesque fincas, vibrant markets and lively festivals.

I look forward to making new friends and being part of a thriving community.”

Silvia Palomino Rodriguez, Sa calma Design

“My name is Silvia Devi, I’m a creative mind and I love to give my best in everything I do. 5 years ago I came to Mallorca for love and I stayed also for love to this island.

My business has evolved hand in hand with me. I’m a very spiritual person, a yoga and meditation teacher, holistic nutrition expert and health & wellness coach. And I am also Silvia Palomino, with a long and recognized trajectory in fashion retail and interior design (like my dad).

Today I’m the fushion of both and I offer a consultant & refurbishing service to transform your house in a typical mallorquin house.

I’m looking forward to being a member of hc/ Connect & Grow because I feel very aligned with the HC philosophy and sharing my knowledge and everything I can with the community.”

Zuzana Sidler, Prinium International FZ-LLC

“My name is Zuza Sidler, I am an experienced entrepreneur for over 30 years and the founder of the Prinium International FZ-LLC company based in Ras al Khaimah. I am also deeply passionate female DeFi expert and blockchain enthusiast recognizing every challenge as a great learning opportunity on my financial journey.

My burning desire and long-term mission is to empower and gently navigate openminded, visionary women through the new unknown decentralize finance territory. Help them to discover new financial solutions, boost growth and reach more safety with creative financial strategies. This year I created the “female holistic investment circle” to gather like-minded women, who are seeking higher investment consciousness and financial liberty.

I fell in love with this magical island Mallorca in 2018, when I turned 55 and we decided to build our “sacred sanctuary” to spend our time here between Switzerland and UAE.

As a member of this conscious holistic business community, I am super excited to share my passion, knowledge, develop authentic relationships and create long lasting nurturing new friendships.”

Urs Sidler, Prinium International FZ-LLC

“Hello, my name is Urs. I’m a passionate Blockchain and Crypto Enthusiast with over 30 Years of FINTECH Investment Experience!

As a seasoned investor in the FINTECH sector, I bring with me more than three decades of experience. I co-founded Prinium International FZ-LLC, headquartered in the vibrant UAE. My global perspective is reflected in my lifestyle, as I split my time between the enchanting Mallorca, the picturesque Switzerland, and the dynamic UAE.

As a proud new member of hc/Connect & Grow, I am dedicated to sharing my wealth of knowledge and enthusiasm for blockchain and crypto. My goal is to develop authentic relationships and create new friendships.”

Isabella Fancello, Apure Lightning Studio

I am looking forward to meeting new people as I recently relocated to the island and I will be brining my expertise and my bubbly personality.”
