Testimonials

The companies below started their establishment in India by incubation facilitated by the Trade Council. Please find their reviews below.

DSV Air & Sea, National Manager Mr. Martin Pillai Roos said:
"Many companies hire a local person and let him work from home, but at the trade office you’ll find the Danish company's spirit and atmosphere and an already established network and "colleagues" who are more than happy to help you get started."

Falck India, Managing Director Mr. Vikas Kuthiala said:
"It was a very helpful facility for us - we had a very smooth start. It is very hard in India to find start up office options. And for international/Danish companies that are unfamiliar with the hardships of start up pains in India - you can waste a lot of time in unproductive things. Business Centres are there too - but they tend to be quite expensive and commercially exploitative at times."

The Trade Council can be contacted Monday-Thursday between 9:00-16:30 and Friday between 9:00-16:00.
