6 February - Start your own business

Welcome to an inspiring seminar on the opportunity of starting your own business. We have invited two speakers, Åsa Ohlsson from Coompanion Skåne and Helén Forssander from Lund Nyföretagarcentrum.

Are you a newcomer in Sweden and have a good business idea? Do you think it is difficult to get into the financial administration that a company requires?

Åsa Ohlsson from Coompanion Skåne will talk about how you can run your own business without establishing a company – how Coompanion Skåne can help you test business ideas by using an umbrella company as a platform in your development

Also meet Helén Forssander from Lund Nyföretagarcentrum, an experienced Business Manager with a long track record from Swedish multinational industries and business development. She will give you information on the process of starting your own business in Lund, Sweden. Nyföretagarcentrum was founded in 1992 with the aim to advise the entrepreneur what is needed to start their own company, assist existing companies to achieve success and build a support network.

 

During our events we sometimes take photographs and short film clips to profile our activities. Please let us know if you don’t want to be in any photos/films before we start the event. Thank you!
