Who We Are
DDJ-AGENT is your freelance Sales Engineer, Business Developer, Marketing Consultant

in France, Benelux, Switzerland and Western & South Europe
Our office is located in Paris la Defense, France
Selecting the right technology for your next development can easily become a nightmare as you can quickly face a wall made of new fancy, hyper-specialized solutions
The risk is that you stick to your existing technologies and miss the step that would make your development a success. Could even be worse if your next development fails because you didn't select the new pieces of technologies that could give you an advantage over your competition!
DDJ-AGENT can help you there
We are specialists in bringing new technologies to your R&D labs and in helping their successful implementations
On the opposite side, new technologies hard meet their market
It's a much different matter than just understanding some requirements. It's more of bringing some essential benefits to a specific category of users, who can have distinct requirements – local requirements – from your other users. It's about getting to the right market, with the right partners and with a right value proposition
DDJ-AGENT can help you there, too
We are locals, with solid cultural roots and keen to manage the specifics. You can benefit from our expertise to save your time when it is to penetrate or set up sustainable market positions
Since 2009, DDJ-AGENT acts as the representative or the agent for companies establishing in France, Benelux, Switzerland and more globally Western and South Europe. We bring our expertise in the fields of IoT, both IT and OT, Automotive, Electronics, both embedded hardware and software, and Telecom Networks
We offer a foot on the ground in these territories at a lower cost, more efficiency and better time-to-market compared to an in-house representation team
Our know-how of trading is well complemented by our know-who in our territories. This is the key for opening opportunities in a cost efficient way for the benefit of all parties
