Doing business in Brussels
A lot easier when someone shows you the way
Why 1819 ?
You can find information about doing business in Brussels on numerous websites. There are also dozens of organisations that can provide support for your business project in all kinds of areas. To make all that research easier for start-up entrepreneurs, as well as for business leaders who want to continue expanding their business, the Brussels-Capital Region set up the 1819 service ten years ago. This brings all the knowledge together and gives entrepreneurs fast, professional and central access to all items of useful information and makes them aware of the many opportunities available.
Raising awareness, connecting, informing and orientating - these drive all our actions. In the Brussels of our dreams, we want everyone, regardless of age, gender, origin or social status, to have the opportunity to unlock their potential through entrepreneurship and to be able to build a sustainable business project with the help of the organisations that are part of our network.
