International business is becoming borderless. European companies are finding new regions and tech hubs in which to start up, many of which have low rents, good quality of life, and a well-educated, highly experienced workforce.
European governments are doing all they can to create the very best environment for entrepreneurs. The Estonian government has gone even further – its e-residency is redefining what citizenship means in a digital world, whilst the Portuguese government has made Lisbon one of the globe’s most attractive places to start a tech company, including significant tax breaks for investments in the sector.
The Republic of Estonia is the first country to offer e-Residency – a transnational secure digital identity available to everybody in the world interested in running a location independent international business online.
All of this can be done in a cost-efficient and hassle-free way, without the need to hire any local director or representative (unless you want to, of course).
