"When it becomes too difficult"
Actually this was the thought which meant that we began organising meetings between business people and professional advisers back in 2013. We quickly confirmed what we in fact already knew, namely that lasting business relationships are built primarily on trust and interpersonal chemistry.
Our idea was to make it easier and faster for companies and business people to meet their needs. A small group consisting of a lawyer, an IT man, creative people within marketing and PR and of course an ex-accountant ventured out to solve the problem.
Together, we developed a platform and adapted the familiar concept "get 3 offers" to the local market. Today we are called Sibus, and after 3 years we're active in 4 countries and hungry to help a lot more companies based on the same recipe.
