New initiative supports international entrepreneurs in start-up phase

Norrbotten is in an expansion phase and wants to attract many new migrants. Entrepreneurs from other countries may need extra support, which is why NyföretagarCentrum Nord is now launching Start a business in Norrbotten, an English-language initiative aimed directly at new entrepreneurs with an international background.

Start a business in Norrbotten starts in Boden on March 26. The initiative is open to international new entrepreneurs and is completely free of charge for participants. The focus is on support for the start-up and the first few years, tax rules and knowing how things like pensions, insurance and financing work in Sweden.

“Need to attract enterprising people”

Ann Murugan is an international business advisor at the Nyföretagarcentrum. Having started a business during her years abroad, she is well aware of the challenges faced by an entrepreneur in a new country.

– We need to attract enterprising people and new skills to the county, but being new to the country and starting your own business is a big step. With our new international initiative, we want to enable more people to get started and get through the early days.

Entrepreneurs with a foreign background

Start a business is aimed at new entrepreneurs with a foreign background during their first three years at the Nyföretagarcentrum’s locations in Arvidsjaur, Boden, Luleå, Pajala, Piteå, Överkalix and Övertorneå.

– In line with the development that is taking place in the north, we want to meet an increasing group of international new entrepreneurs, where we find, among other things, companions in the large industrial investments, says Anna Engström, head of operations. The Start a business in Norrbotten initiative, which we are implementing together with our partners, is a good start to becoming a valuable part of the county’s business community.

Digital and local stand-alone meetings for the target group of international new entrepreneurs in Norrbotten are ongoing during 2024 – 2026. The initiative is financed by the Kamprad Family Foundation.
