“The entry of ARTS ET BIENS in the company came out of my “loneliness” as a business owner. Their financial support helped me to accelerate the growth of my business. ARTS ET BIENS especially knew how to support me in the implementation of a defined strategy. Neither too far, nor too close, they always pushed me to my best. They helped me to improve my decision-making processes and to carry out precious meetings to develop my business. Finally, they always knew how to be by my side, solid and reassuring” Emmanuel GUTH – MEZZO DI PASTA Chairman
