WHO WE ARE
Co-Founder & CEO Expat Launcher
Hi, I am Janis Reinholtz, Co-Founder and CEO of Expat Launcher. I graduated in German law and once upon a time was an Expat myself when studying abroad in San Francisco. Also, I am a registered insurance broker with the Hamburg chamber of commerce and specialize on health insurance for Expats coming to Germany.
When I met Tamie and abducted her to Germany, I was quickly confronted with some of the hoops Expats have to jump through when they go abroad. Out of that grew the idea for a platform to make going abroad easy and enjoyable: Expat Launcher was born.
I’m contributing with my knowledge about the German legal system, the language and last but not least the mentality. When I’m not working on Expat Launcher I am probably traveling the world in a Volkswagen van or choking people unconscious doing Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
Founder of Speakeasy Language Academy e.K
Hi, I am Tamie Arietta, I’m a true nomad at heart. After I decided to take a year off from the corporate world, I began my journey traveling, volunteering, and studying around the world. Since 2014, I've visited four continents and over 25 countries, and the list keeps growing. Luckily for me, I found a way to combine my love for traveling, helping others and teaching. After receiving my TEFL certification in Italy, I designed, developed and started: Speakeasy Language Academy. A platform to assist freelance English teachers wanting to live abroad and teach privately. Two years of successfully assisting dozens of freelance English Teachers around the world to get their visas; I knew there was still a need to help others looking to transition abroad not only freelancers, but students and expats wanting language visas or work visas.
My first year applying for a visa was painstakingly horrible trying to figure out all the hoops you have to jump through to live in a foreign country. There is so much information online that most people don’t know where to start or how to go about moving and living in another country; to be honest, most of the information you find online is wrong or outdated.
This is how and why Expat Launcher was created. Janis, my amazing supporter, translator, and lawyer has been there right by my side and has seen the hurdles expats face when trying to get settled abroad. That’s why we provide full-service packages with one-on-one support; we want other expats to experience a painless and smooth transition abroad.
