Brightstep: Delivering digital commerce solutions in the Nordics

“We chose to hire Stella EOC because of their specialisation in tech/e-commerce, their international experience and their personal commitment. They contributed in the best possible way in our sale process, demonstrating their wide expertise, strength in all stages and cross-border experience. They showed great professionalism during the demanding and time-pressed process, while very humble and flexible to work with on a personal level. Stella EOC also played a crucial role in the negotiation of the agreement so that both we and the buyer could agree on a good framework.”
