On the website of 1819.brussels you can find all the information you need to start, take over, transform or wind down a business. It is your guide to every stage in the life cycle of your business.
1819 is the information service for anyone wishing to start or develop an economic activity in the region.
It provides entrepreneurs with front-line information on the various aspects related to carrying out an economic activity (financing, public aid for setting up or developing a business, choice of legal form and social status, administrative procedures and access to the profession, authorisations required to start a new activity, etc.).
It also guides businesses through the Brussels network of institutions and organisations serving Brussels entrepreneurs. To this end, 1819 is in permanent contact with a particularly extensive network of public bodies and private companies or associations that train, accompany, finance or support Brussels entrepreneurs.
The 1819 service is free of charge and available in French, Dutch or English, by telephone, e-mail or at our premises.
Every entrepreneur needs to take the time to thoroughly prepare their project. Setting up a business is not just a question of funding. It also involves legal and administrative steps. Ask yourself the following questions:
- Is your project viable?
- Which legal form will you choose?
- How do you draft a financial plan?
- What funding is necessary?
- What are the legal formalities?
- Where will you base your business?
