Start a business
West Sweden is one of the country’s fastest growing regions for new startups. If you have an idea or have noticed a gap in the market, or simply want to create your own job, starting your own business may be something for you. And the process is relatively straightforward.
A good starting point is the website Verksamt.se. This is created by several government agencies and has information in English on how to start and run a business in Sweden.
In the Gothenburg region, the City of Gothenburg and Business Region Göteborg also offer free advisory services for budding entrepreneurs, including drop-in sessions at the city library and at Business Region Göteborg’s business centres at Hisingen and Angered.
