Global Goal

Twente is home to 58,630 companies (census date 1 January 2022). That this region is an attractive location for companies, entrepreneurs and talent is a logical conclusion. Twente is a good place to be for entrepreneurs. Why? You'll find out at the bottom of this article. First, we share five tips that are good to hear even if you are already a seasoned entrepreneur.
  • Invest in yourself. Your business will not grow faster than you develop. Invest in yourself for new insights, knowledge and experiences. Talk to like-minded people and schedule time for this. 
  • Keep sharing goals. Make sure everyone in the business knows what the end goal is and how you want to achieve it. It is a misconception among entrepreneurs that everyone in the company knows. So schedule regular moments to share where the company stands, what has been achieved and where challenges lie. 
  • Don't do everything yourself. The smallest jobs often cost the most time and usually they can be outsourced to someone who is an expert in them (and who takes less time). This gives you focus again for achieving your goals. 
  • Dare to fail. Did you know that the most successful entrepreneurs are masters of failure? It didn't stop them and instead opened new doors. By making mistakes, you see where your growth is.
  • Customer time. How much time have you really spent with your clients? Often, you are busy with everything but your client. Give your customer what they need. Come up with products or services they need and put on paper what problem you are solving for the customer by doing so.
Especially for starters

Are you considering going into business? You are your own boss and set your own course, schedule your own time, can work wherever you want and decide how varied or creative your work is. These are just a few advantages that probably persuaded you to take this step. But did you know that entrepreneurs also tend to earn more? After all, there is no employer or employment agency getting a cut of your money. In addition, your creativity and personal development takes a leap when you become an entrepreneur. Of course, there are a number of things you need to take into account, but the Belastingdienst (tax authorities) list them for you.
