Plan to start your own business?

Have an idea for business but don’t know where to start? Starting your own business doesn’t have to be a difficult process – if you know where to look for help and guidance.

In the beginning, many questions arise. Where do I start? Which business model should I choose? How to register the company? What about the accounting? How do I market the product?

Luckily, there are several institutions that help entrepreneurs to get started: Skape, Innovation Norway, Valide and, of course, Eigersund Næring og Havn. Most of the services are free of charge.
