Apart from offering a great office space and business environment, we have received a lot of help from the Chamber’s experienced team through their Business Services and B2B Matchmaking, specifically with legal and accounting expertise in entering the market – both in terms of direct insight and great referrals to market and industry experts.” 

Jan Arnheim, Commercial Director – Maria Nila

“We had a lot of help with administration through the recommendation of partners that could help us with legal aspects and all the things you have to do.  I am a strong believer in networks and to share your knowledge to help each other succeed.
