    “What stood out about Companow’s services was how it was so clear and easy to follow.  Furthermore, they deliver great customer service.  Alain and Yvane where amazing, they kept me informed at all times and guided me through the process expertly – I would recommend them to anyone looking to set up in France.”
    Greg Barrow, Hargenant

    “Here in the UK we can set up a business in 24 hours and start – this is not the case in France.  However, with the help of a business like ‘Companow’, everything is possible, and more importantly, it is done quickly and effectively. They listened to what we needed, gave excellent guidance and advice, and then handled all the background work.  I knew we wouldn’t have to go anywhere else, they could handle it all.  This partnership is the best investment we made in our French business.”
    Fabienne Tyler, Renouvelle
