Bavaria – the German state with the highest number of new business start-ups
With almost 70,000 people becoming self-employed in 2011 alone, Bavaria is the German state with the highest number of new business start-ups.
Starting up a new business in Germany is simple and uncomplicated. Foreign investors have the opportunity to set up an independent branch of their company in Germany, so they can operate there directly.
In addition, they can set up subsidiaries and, like German entrepreneurs, they may choose which form of company they prefer.
