We help foreign investors to establish or expand a business in Flanders.

In close collaboration with our sister-organization Flanders Investment & Trade (FIT) we help foreign entrepreneurs and investors to establish or expand a business in Flanders.

  • Assist you in finding the right location (office space, industrial or logistic buildings, greenfields etc.) to set up your company; 
  • Guide you through specific legislation in Flanders and Belgium concerning start up formalities, environmental and urban development permits, labour law, property law, taxation, etc; 
  • Inform you about governmental incentives (subsidies, public financing tools, etc.) for your project; 
  • Search for appropriate industrial, research and innovation partners in Flanders; 
  • Guide you to professional organizations.
