Who is a Professional/BDS Provider?

A Professional/ BDS (Business Development Services) Provider is an entity possessing competence in a particular activity or a function and provides this expertise at a fee to an enterprise which needs this expertise for restructuring/growth.


While many Professionals/ BDS providers specialize in certain areas, together as a sector they offer advice and solutions across all of a business’ main functions: from inputs, through production, to final marketing and sales. 

In all of these areas – and more – Professionals/ BDS providers can work with enterprises to bring the right kind of expertise, at the right time, and at a right cost to help the enterprises address their business barriers to be able to grow more profitably.
