There are numerous web pages in every country that are providing informations, but they are to fragmented and also confusing. Therefore, our project aims to develop innovative business model for the comprehensive addressing needs of economic migrants (entrepreneurs, etc.) in Danube region. In terms of providing relevant business information, our project focuses excusively in: information on legislation, conditions for establishing a company, tax arrangements, etc.
