Hi, do you remember when I was posting an article about the European Parliament of Enterprises of 2008? Where I had been as a member of European enterprises.
It’s coming soon again. When? 18th of October, 2012.
Contact your chamber of commerce and register your company. I’m not really sure when is the application deadline for each country however, it’s just a reminder.
by organizer: “For the “European Parliament of Enterprises” EUROCHAMBRES brings together over 750 business men and women, coming from 45 European countries who get a chance to ‘become’ Members of the European Parliament for one day, debating and voting on some of the most crucial topics currently at the heart of the political debate.”

good luck with the application
It has been already 4 years since I have been chosen to represent Czech Republic as the entrepreneur ( 20 in total) in EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT OF ENTERPRISES 2008. It allowed businessmen and businesswomen to become Members of the European Parliament for one day, debate and vote on some of the most crucial topics currently at the heart of the political debate. If you are an entrepreneur one of the EU country and would like to rise your hand and say your opinion in the Hemicycle infront of 750 fellows, send a request to your chamber of commerce. The next event is going to take a place in Brussels during the autumn, 2012.
One of the most important matter for this event is networking and find potential customer or even to start new project! It’s not a vacation or politics its about your company, your deal!
PS: Yes, I did shake with hand of Jose Manuel Barrosso 🙂

Bank reference letter from HSBC Hong Kong. Past a few days, we were getting questions how the bank reference letter looks like. Here you are – this is an example of bank reference letter from HSBC.

Offshore territory is any jurisdiction except your resident one ( where you currently live) mostly known for the legal, tax and financial benefits or from the company management point of view. It might be UK (not only UK others countries are offshore) once you live in Luxembourg or USA (not only USA others countries are offshore) once you live in China. It’s quite simple isn’t it?
To be offshore in banking industry means to have a bank account in different country than you reside.
It would be fine to mention what does it mean to be “onshore”. Onshore might be regarded as the jurisdiction where a company is domiciled and in which it pays a significant rate of tax. There is even a term in resource management when founder comes to low cost country (e.g. as China) and will use the advantage of the low labor cost.
Nowadays, I would like to more stress not just the offshore or onshore matter but the globalization taking an effect in trading and IT industry. Tthere is now quite easy way to start your own business with really low costs as was mentioned before e.g.: open International Business Company in Seychelles + find your product ( good or service) + set up web and launch business into 48 hours.
It’s simple, isn’t it? startupr.com
