One of the most fun things I’ve done in a long time, getting to know new people and getting rid of their prejudices

With over a decade of experience in Ukraine, Sigma has paved the way for fruitful partnerships abroad, driven by a quest for both expertise and affordability.

Looking ahead, Arianit sees Sigma as a pioneer in setting a standard for business in Kosovo and hopes that other Swedish companies will follow suit.
