Whether you are only contemplating expanding abroad or are ready to take the plunge, you will find institutions, associations, initiatives and programmes that support you in your decision. You will also find EU websites on how to do business in specific countries abroad and help desks around the world.

Use the ‘country’ filter below to refine your search and view country-specific information only.

If you are unable to find country- or sector-specific information, try using other search criteria.

To help with this, we have added tags which enable you to search for specific information throughout the platform, so that you can view all the relevant information on one topic without having to browse through all the sections and sub-sections.

As some information is relevant to both women and men, please keep in mind that some results will target women in particular, while others will be relevant to entrepreneurs in general.
