GMAB provides (since 2006) Dutch language and culture training and language translation services. Apart from that we also give Business Development services to innovative Indian SME’s which wish to enter into European markets.
GMAB was founded in Bengaluru on 21 September 2006. First GMAB was only a translation agency (with Sogeti and Logica CMG as clients). Later, with a team of developers and project managers we gave BPO services to a Dutch and British company. Finally we started to provide coaching and cultural consultancy services and Dutch Language Training. TCS, Rayleco, Ciber and many individuals from a diversity of backgrounds became our clients. We also linked up with business developers in the Netherlands and organizations like NFIA and WFIA to help Indian companies to develop business in Europe and set up their office in the Netherlands.
We believe in conducting business with ethics, integrity and a social conscience. Our Guiding Principles are a) Integrity b) Transparency c) Responsibility d) Honesty e) Respect for society
