Naturally, the government is interested in growing the economy and providing jobs. Consequently, it is interested in encouraging the foundation process of new businesses. Therefore, there are programs in place which provide information, e.g. about the registration process and legal guidelines. Moreover, financial incentives, such as tax reductions can be granted.
In addition, big companies might be interested in your ideas and willing to support it. Some start competitions or special start-up events during which ideas are developed and discussed with experts. So stay posted about what is happening around you!
