Introduction to Frankfurt’s Startup Ecosystem

When we talk about Frankfurt in this article, we actually describe the whole area around Frankfurt, which is known as “Frankfurt Rhine-Main” or FRM.

Introduction to the Chad Startup Ecosystem

The entrepreneurial ecosystem in Chad is still developing. It lacks information and data. It is confronted with  several challenges such as lack of organization such as a national agency of information, counseling, financial assistance, judicial, and administrative. Also, the taxes are high, and there is no exoneration from corporate tax (IS) for newly created companies. The microfinance sector is not noticeable.
