Setting up a business in Düsseldorf


This seminar by the Office of Economic Development Düsseldorf is specifically aimed at foreign entrepreneurs and provides all the information you need to set up a business in the region.

One in ten entrepreneurs in Germany is a foreigner. And more and more foreigners are choosing top international locations like Düsseldorf to set up their own companies and implement their business ideas. Our seminar deals with the many challenges and questions that foreign entrepreneurs face on their way to establishing a successful new business. We introduce the Startup City Düsseldorf with its multitude of networks, organisations and consulting programmes. We will focus on the legal aspects of setting up a business, focussing on the aspects particularly relevant to foreigners such as residence rights and work permits. Then we look at the subject of taxation.

Finally, you will have the opportunity to ask any still outstanding questions. Speakers: Office of Economic Development Düsseldorf; Jan Matthes, Lawyer; Daniel Schmaltz, Tax Advisor and CPA
