“In this difficult situation, we feel obliged to support business in Prague, where we also operate. We therefore decided to contribute to the DoToho! platform not only financially, but also by providing the know-how of our leading experts in company management and crisis managers. I believe that thanks to mutual support, we will not only be able to overcome this period, but together we will help set up a more modern and innovative business ecosystem.“

“It makes sense to support small entrepreneurs in a crisis, because they are the backbone of our economy. And it may not always be with the help of credit, but good advice is also useful. We did this in Covid' time and helped our clients understand the complicated area of state aid. Clients appreciate it and their satisfaction is growing. Can the bank be a partner and helper of the entrepreneur? I think so, and it's the only right way in modern banking."
