Christine Govindsamy

CEO of Hashtag MO Holdings

“As soon as I reached out to Business France I was assisted from every step in terms of vetting our Business Plan, understanding what our requirements were, assisting us in understanding the different kinds of businesses we can set up in France, the ones that are most suitable to our organisation and when I had questions these were directly answered.”

Laila Slim


“I would recommend using Business France as they played an invaluable role in setting up my company in France. It is important for a foreign company to know from the start what we want, why we are going to set up in France and what the company will bring to France. Setting up in France is culturally, economically and socially enriching on both sides”.
