Foreign founders can have 100% ownership

Most business classifications are open to 100% foreign investment and ownership, and do not require special approval or licenses.

You can have up to 50 company founders – similar in nature to shareholders – as either individuals or investors.

Simple corporate structure

A sole director of a company may also count as one of the founders.

Hire as many foreigners as required, provided that they have a university degree and three years of experience.
