Guide to Finding Consultants in Europe
Finding the right professionals for your business in the Netherlands, Norway or any other European country can be challenging. Directories with professionals are basically non-existent.

We strives to provide a better experience for foreign entrepreneurs who want to start up in Europe. But also for others with an existing network that want to try out a new way to find professional service providers.
Our focus is on small and medium-sized enterprises that are planning to start up a business in Europe and existing businesses in search of a new service provider.

Processes that require multiple professionals
One of the main issues with finding the right professionals is that they have one particular field of knowledge. Very often you are not just dealing with one legal question or one accounting issue.
A single advisor does not always have an overview of the entire business process in which you as a client are involved. As a client, you often act as a kind of contractor who guides the various professionals to achieve your ultimate goal: successfully establish a new company, your company sold, the acquisition of a company, raising of an investment etc.
