Office set up

We offer office set up in physical locations or Virtual Offices.

Location:
Istanbul, being a city larger than many European Countries is a business oasis on its own but all the steps should be handled with care.While setting up an office, especially in Istanbul, one of the most important criteria is where to set up the office. Istanbul has many city centers in both continents Europe and Asia and traffic jam is an important issue in deciding about real estate.

Of course, if the showroom, the factory and/or the warehouse has to be in different corners of the city, the logistics between them is to be considered.

Virtual Offices:
Set-up an office TODAY in a business area in Istanbul, with a telephone, secretary, wireless connections, furniture and meeting rooms and start working TOMORROW MORNING.
