What others say about us

“Maarten Zandvoort (TIME consultant) conducted a survey for our company in Japan. We were positively surprised by the depth of the analysis he and his collaborators carried out. The survey was very comprehensive and logically constructed in spite of the difficulty of accessing the required information in such a niche market as ours. His conclusions were very clear and logically formulated and they will help our company to find the right way when entering the Japanese market.”

“Students come into contact more easily with companies than we do, especially when a university is involved. For this reason companies enter into a conversation more easily with investigators than that they would do this with us. The research gave us accurate insights at a relatively low price.”
