I met with ten of the candidates, they were of good class and some were extraordinary, there among Ms Damaris Kola who got the job in May last year,” says Jan Svallingson.
“Sharing office with Business Sweden not only comes with the benefits that a serviced office offers, but also provides a shared working space where we can interact with other hosted companies of similar business profiles, hence sharing market ideas,” says Damaris Kola.
