How to start a business in Chile, Legal and accounting aspects for foraging entrepreneurs

In this two day event we talk about legal and acconting aspects, all you need to know to start business in Chile.

Starting your own business is scary enough – without having to add a foreign country, language, and culture in the mix! Of course, like any other country, Chile has its own laws and tax regulations that need to be followed to avoid legal problems, which can be a bit daunting if you’re from a different country or don’t speak Spanish as well as you’d like. It’s for this reason that I’m particularly excited to announce a Business Start-up Seminar Series presented by Tópate, an innovation and entrepreneurship center, and Discover Chile’s Business Networking Alliance designed specifically for the English-speaking entrepreneurial community (and, of course, Discover Chile members who book with the promo code, DiscoverChile, enjoy a 20% discount!)
