'Simple set-up, and a straightforward business culture'

Our Business Development Manager Negar Sabaghzadeh works closely with international firms looking to establish a presence in Stockholm.

As she explains:

"Many of our clients want a plug-and-play process, a quick and easy establishment, and they realise that compared to other European cities that’s what they get here as it’s a simple process to set up and the business culture is very straightforward."

"Companies have thriving markets and access to great talent, especially in tech and IT, while for employees, openness and equality are benefits we hear again and again."
