Brussels at the heart of Europe, a central and strategic position
Brussels is often referred to as the political and economic capital of the European Union. Indeed, it is in Belgium that the political bodies of Europe and the headquarters of many international institutions are located. Brussels is home to the European Commission, the European Parliament, the European Council, NATO, but also to thousands of international organizations, lobbying firms, embassies, associations, federations, etc. So many key players that make the heart of Europe beat and gathered in one and only city: Brussels
Only 90 minutes from Paris, 2 hours from Amsterdam by Thalys or London by Eurostar, Brussels is a must for European workers and travelers. Brussels’ airports also offer numerous daily connections to the main European cities and business centers. An ideal situation for developing business, settling there for a more or less determined period of time or travelling to the city on an occasional basis.
At the heart of Europe and its commercial and industrial centers, Brussels is home to the headquarters of many major international companies. In addition, the Belgian road and rail system and its seaports (Antwerp, Liege, Ghent, Ostend and Zeebrugge) easily connect Belgium to the rest of Europe. It takes only a few hours to connect British companies to the European continent. A great deal for your logistics during the Brexit period!
The Business Districts and numerous commercial opportunities
Thanks to its international outlook and central location, the Belgian capital welcomes every year many expatriates wishing to join the European institutions, but also young international workers looking for a new experience in the heart of Europe. A competitive, multicultural and multilingual environment that encourages growth and development of all types of companies, from start-ups to multinationals!
In addition to its open economy, Belgium offers highly qualified human resources in many fields (IT, engineering, chemistry, etc.). In this context, Brussels, as a business and economic center, has rapidly developed to meet the need for work spaces. From private offices, to coworking space, as well as meeting and conference rooms.
With the establishment of the European institutions and many international companies, the city’s business districts have developed rapidly. Notably the famous Quartier Léopold, a stone’s throw from the famous Place du Luxembourg, and now called the European Quarter. It is home to both private offices and coworking spaces or many belgian and international workers.
Support for (foreign) companies setting up in business in Brussels
To support entrepreneurs, Brussels offers many programs and events. Financing of innovative startups, loans, guarantees on professional bank credits, co-financing, set-up bonus, coworking bonus, etc. There are numerous subsidies for the creation, establishment and development of companies in Belgium.
