DBH was founded in 1994 by local governments and development agencies from the Netherlands and Hungary and was initially headquartered in the city of Maastricht as a nonprofit institution. In tandem the commercial entity, DBH Holland BV later on, DBH Group, was established by Mr. Sandor Erdei, a Dutch-Hungarian national, after finishing his MBA studies in Maastricht. Reflecting on the beginnings Sándor recalls that“…starting from scratch was a great risk but worth taking it. Since then, risk taking is part of my everyday business life. I always enjoy creating sustainable business value, growth and positive impact on environment and society. I am an entrepreneur but DBH ‘s vision is formed by a team of great partners and professionals today. We are capable of helping businesses meeting their growth plans “- he added.
Ever since the mid ‘90s the Central and Eastern European market posed a challenge for West European companies to do business just as was the case for East Europeans companies targeting to do business in the Netherlands. DBH since its inception has been focusing on foreign direct investments (FDI) into Hungary and later on into other Central and Eastern European countries.
DBH has grown from an FDI consulting company into an investment and service group engaged in international business with a focus on venture capital, flexible infrastructure and corporate business services.
