Got a brilliant idea, a head for business, but no idea where to start? This section informs you about your rights and opportunities when setting up a business in any EU country and links to websites and portals that provide exactly the information you need to get off to the right start.

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 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.
