"Opera Capital Partners launched its corporate and private financial advisory services in Norway in 2007. The FNCC in Oslo was of tremendous help in setting up our business in this country, not only in organizing and implementing 3 events in Oslo with high efficiency but also in being a key ressource to initiate customer prospection and help us in recruiting our local partners.
I would definitely recommend any French company willing to enter the Norwegian market to start by using the experience, knowledge and infrastructure of the CCFN before starting any local operation."
