How does it work? Description of services offered
The Service for Business Location provides business leaders and executives in charge of investment projects with concrete, personalised information based on the specifications determined for their project.
How do we develop these specifications?
The specifications are developed by a Service for Business Location project manager after talking with the company leaders and determining together what their needs are.
The solutions will vary according to how much information the company needs, and how in-depth, and according to how specific the geographical range for the project is (for a single region or city across several possible countries).
How do we provide this information?
The information is provided in an investor proposal which will include some or all of the following elements:
- A range of land and/or real estate solutions that would suit the company’s needs
- Information on legal and tax matters
- Information on financial assistance available based on the type of project: subsidies, low-interest loans, organisation of pools to find possible investment contributions: seed capital, venture capital, development capital, establishing relations with banks, etc.
- Information on costs, training, qualifications, Human Resources potential, R&D potential (laboratories, technology platforms, competitiveness centres) etc.
- The region’s economic make-up: access, infrastructure, companies already present, subcontractors, contractors, raw material supply, consumer base.
How can you get the most out of this information?
The investor proposal(s), tailored to the region(s) the company is interested in, is generally sent directly to the director so he/she can study it and assess the various solutions suggested.
How much does this information cost?
The Service for Business Location’s services require no commitment on behalf of the business. It is free of charge and completely confidential. All that we ask of the company leader is feedback and follow-up information so that the project manager can do proper project follow-up (has the project been set-up, put on standby or shelved, which regions were chosen or eliminated from consideration, helpfulness of the proposals, etc.).
