Guide to Productive Spaces
This point, mentioned at the beginning of the post, looks pretty interesting; it is very interactive and practical. It consists on a map of the province, with all the productive spaces and plots available along the province. It gives you the possibility of selecting the whole province or look for spaces in just one city or area. When clicking a space, it shows all the information about it, like, the name and address, the total area space, year of construction, type of constructions (i.e. warehouses). With another click, it shows all the features, like broadband, near public transport, access to roads, domestic waste bin, access to natural gas and electricity and so on. In the third tab we can find all the services available around or in the space itself such as nearby cafeterias, gas station, postal service and so on. Finally in the last tab we can find the information about the promoter, with the full name, contact email and phone number and full address.
Business Opportunities and Investor Tools
In these last two spaces, we can find, in the first place a Business opportunities finder, either by map searching or list searching.
The second and last tab is about investor tools. Maybe of the most important aspect when setting up a business either as an entrepreneur, a self-employed or an investor is knowing what are their helps, grants and subsidies. The page has a filter searching system so the view can be about all the subsidies and grants or just only about the ones interesting for us i.e. credits, guarantees, subventions or awards. Right now the general search shows 179 results, a wide number of possibilities that can absolutely boost our business.
