DYZO

Dyzo has more than 8 years of experience in helping self-employed in the three phases of peril:

  1. When there is still a company that needs urgent attention. The aim is saving the business, if still possible, or delivering essential information which enables the entrepreneur to decide on the end of the business.
  2. When the decision on the end of the business is made, assisting the entrepreneur with advice on essentials that make survival possible. Being available and supportive is important in this phase.
  3. When the old company had gone down, supporting economical reintegration of the former entrepreneur with advice on paths that have proven their worth. This is also the moment to learn from the past.
