What Are Investors Saying?

"A lot of companies are evaluating now to open offices in Bogota given the fast growth the city is experiencing, and every time I talk to someone that wants to come to start doing business here I strongly recommend that they should talk to Invest in Bogota as a first step! The people from Invest in Bogota are extremely smart and with the best of dispositions to help, they were a critical factor in our opening in Bogota and provided guidance and information without which we would have spent a lot more time and money figuring out some aspects of the local context that Invest in Bogota generously and proactively provided in a very digested fashion. If I can give companies coming to Bogota only one advice that would be that the first thing they need to do is to contact Invest in Bogota".

"Working alongside Invest in Bogota has truly been very refreshing. As a representative of a major international service company, we value local relationships very much and first impressions are very important. (…) their [Invest in Bogota’s] strength lies with their people and their leadership. Their executives are professional, bi-lingual, and attentive and work to the highest ethical standards. Invest in Bogota (…) have assisted myself and others in our organization in understanding the inner workings of doing business, not only in Bogota, but Colombia in general – not through rose-colored glasses, but objectively. Invest in Bogota has a wealth of information and contacts and have been instrumental in lining up meetings with key industry professionals – from US embassy personnel to leading energy leaders in the sector. Thank you for such high value service!".
