Time Required to Start a Business

This map shows time required to start a business around the world in days. Time required to start a business is the number of calendar days needed to complete the procedures to legally operate a business.

As we help kit makers around the world start their businesses some areas of the world are faster/easier to get a business started than others – this chart is pretty accurate!

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

    That’s it I’m moving to Portugal…

  2. Wow … glad I don’t live in Spain. Though I think they make it so easy here in France simply so that they can start asking for taxes that much quicker. 🙂
