one-stop shop to create
The House of Entrepreneurship’s one-stop shop is directed just as much towards aspiring independent entrepreneurs as to established businesses, and supports them:
- with the formalities associated with trading and export;
- with the processes involved in the creation, sale or acquisition of a business, and particularly in the area of right of establishment;
- with useful information and advice on legal and tax matters;
- via networking through its initiatives and those of its local partners.
one-stop shop to transfer
The House of Entrepreneurship also provides advice on selling or buying businesses, and puts vendors and buyers in touch with one another. Its advice is multi-discipline and covers the key stages of the process of transferring a business. Introductions between vendors and buyers are completely confidential. To facilitate searches for future buyers, we have launched the one-stop shop to prevent scheme, a specific referral and advice unit linked to an online sale-and-purchase platform.
A specific ten-module training course called “acquiring a business in practice” has also been designed in collaboration with the House of Training.
Each module is led by a practising trainer and rounded out with contributions from transfer professionals and testimonies from people who have bought companies.
one-stop shop to go digital
In response to the various challenges involved in the digitisation of businesses, the House of Entrepreneurship provides IT support to young enterprises in their efforts to incorporate digital transformation into their business models.
This support, provided in collaboration with Luxinnovation, takes three forms:
- information on and awareness raising about the digitisation of SMEs;
- evaluation of SMEs’ digitisation via self-diagnostics;
- advice, support and training.
