What is better to buy a franchise or start your own business? In this article, we will give answers to them.
Features of the culture of doing business abroad and in Russia
In European countries, small business is a direct source of economic growth. Starting a business in this segment is facilitated by preferential tax legislation, economic stability, and a high legal culture.
In a unique environment, there is a novice American entrepreneur who receives all-round state support, the main feature of which is a wide range of consultations and free information services.
Things are somewhat different in Russia. Here, the lack of public services will have to be compensated by our own activity. Another problem of Russian small business is the lack of a legal framework.
For reference: the share of small business in the GDP of the EU countries is 70%, the United States – 40%, Russia – 23.6%.
