A seminar on setting up your business in Brussels
Parcsdactivites.com was able to identify this project whilst inviting companies to attend the seminar “setting up your business in Brussels: admin, taxation and human resources” which was organised by hub.brussels in June 2017.
OSSIA CONSEIL confirmed their intention to form a subsidiary in Brussels after attending the seminar. The directors had actually been considering setting up there for a while, at the request of several important clients. With the support of Parcsdactivites.com and hub.brussels, the company launched OSSIA Belgium in Brussels in January 2018.
15 job creations
3 jobs were created initially, and the company expects to employ around 15 people at their Belgian office in the next 3-5 years.
Brussels confirms its attraction once again! The seminaire showcased the advantages of establishing your business in Brussels and enabled the detection of several projects, including that of the French company Wild Code School which set up its first international campus in Belgium in 2018.
