6 Best Countries To Start A Business In 2020



6 Best Countries To Start A Business In 2020

Let’s get one thing straight – going global is an excellent idea when it comes to starting your own business. You get two very important benefits. First of all – you diversify your market and get a new customer base. Second, you greatly reduce your dependence on any conditions imposed upon you by your local markets. Amazing opportunities await you when you invest outside your own country, but you do need to be smart about it.

We have taken the liberty of writing up this little article, to assist you in choosing the best market available to start your own business overseas.


Let’s start with a banger. Good old Switzerland. With a GDP of around 679 billion dollars, a GDP growth of 1.4%, as well as very low unemployment and inflation rate, it’s a strong and stable economy that just wants to be invested in.

Namely, Switzerland is famous for its stable political climate, its skilled workforce, and the highly developed manufacturing industry. Specializing in high technology and knowledge-based production, as well as low corporate taxes, Switzerland is an amazing choice.

However, do note that this is probably the least affordable option on the list when it comes to potential investments. Still, its strong infrastructure and low corporate taxes more than makeup for it.

Next on the list, we have Mexico. A very strong GDP of 1.1 trillion, with a 2.3% GDP growth, a 2.8% inflation rate, Mexico’s economy has been growing slowly and steadily for some time now. What makes it stand out, however, are the extensive business registration reforms that have been going for some time now.

It’s much easier to start your own business legally and efficiently here now. Also take into consideration the fact that its labor force is very strong, willing to work, and relatively affordable.

Of course, one issue might be the high crime rate. However, this is not that big of a problem for the simple reason that its financial districts and centers are safe. These dangerous crime rates are usually localized to certain specific areas.


Australia has been going strong for some time now. With its 1.323 trillion dollar GDP, a growth of 2%, and a relatively low inflation rate, it’s a great place for opening up a business. Couple that with advances in education, a stronger and more skilled workforce, solid industry, and you got yourself a winning combination.

We would like to put some extra emphasis on Tasmania, however. With a burgeoning economy that is getting stronger and stronger, a strong tourist presence and great real estate options, moving to Tasmania and starting your own business might be exactly what you need.  It’s a very start-up friendly area, as well as very welcoming to digital nomads.
