Anyone starting their own business faces a lot of hurdles. And it’s even more difficult if you come from another country and you don’t know all the rules, conditions and facilities. That’s what Birgit Veskioja found out as she was setting up her own practice in psychology, which recently opened its doors in Maastricht. With the help of resources like the Business Contact Point (BCP), the StartersCentrum Limburg, and the Holland Expat Centre South (HECS), she found her way. ‘I was surprised that there was so much information available.’
