Support to diagnose and define improvement actions in different areas of business management 

Faced with the recession of COVID-19, the Advisory Service has been strengthened by incorporating the Legal Guidance Service for self-employed workers and small enterprises, in collaboration with the Barcelona Bar Association, to provide support for self-employed people and small enterprises who want to resolve difficulties in meeting the rental fee arising from the impact of COVID-19.

In the same way, we expand the Advisory Service in social and solidarity economy with a specific advisory service to resolve doubts and needs of initiatives in the care sector, either related to the impact of the activity by the COVID -19 or to build future scenarios.

We activate the Rethinking Business Reactivation Plans, aimed at small businesses, self-employed people, businesses and SSE organizations that need advice to boost economic activity in the post-COVID-19 context. A specialized technical team will accompany each business individually to define a business strategy that helps accelerate its economic recovery. 



We provide support in the consolidation and growth of small enterprises, self-employed people and commerce and organizations of Social and Solidarity Economy, considering their specific needs.


This service gives access to the following active resources of specialized and personalized advice:
