Business Development Services (BDS) Forum

The BDS Forum is a database and discussion forum on different BDS strategies. We do not support “the only one BDS approach” – monopoly but complementary business development strategies proved in practice like the moderate BDS approach including commercial BDS providers as well as NGOs, local city administrations, public providers and self-help organisations.
