Start your business… in the right place

It is often said that business is more complicated in France than abroad. So why not build your projects in a state that is more conducive to entrepreneurs? 17% of the richest get rich by starting their own business. According to figures from the World Bank’s Doing business study in 2020, New Zealand, Singapore, Hong Kong, Denmark and South Korea are the five countries where it is easiest to start a business.

Now that administrative paperwork is no longer a problem, it is important to evaluate the needs of your new host country. You need to choose the market that best suits your concept, where you will have the best opportunity to implement your brilliant idea or promote your French know-how. So, opening a bakery in France will definitely not have the same impact as if you do it in Japan or Hong Kong.

Living in a country where it is easier to be a billionaire

Becoming a billionaire takes a lot of effort, especially if you are not lucky enough to win the final jackpot in Lotto. However, wealth remains relative, and largely depends on the flow of money. So let’s forget the euro, the US dollar or even the pound sterling. In many countries, becoming a millionaire or becoming a billionaire is not that complicated. So, 1 million South Korean won is only equivalent to 740 euros, 1 million Laotian kip to 65 euros and you will only need 40 euros to reach your first million in Vietnamese dong! So you’re a billionaire without even knowing it!
