Formalize your company
We know that entrepreneurship is a very important choice for you and your family, we understand that you know the business, but sometimes you know little or nothing about how to be a business manager. For this reason, the CCB has created the Business Formalization Program in order to accompany you in achieving your dreams, thus increasing the likelihood of success. We invite you to strengthen your business, to prepare yourself to compete in the market, generating greater opportunities, better connections with other entrepreneurs, with more and better sales. In the CCB we understand formalization as the exercise of an economic activity under the rules of the State, for us it is a process of economic inclusion that allows your company to grow, be a supplier to other companies, reach other markets, obtain credit, access to all Business Strengthening services offered by the entity and participate in various financial programs of government entities.
How the CCB helps you to formalize your company
Visit of our formalization advisors

During our visit, you can learn about the benefits of having a formal business, we can advise you on how to sell more in your business and invite you to join the growth program for formalization, with which you can have a personalized support from a business consultant to help you with new ideas or tools to boost the growth of your business.
Additionally, we can learn how to help you by conducting a survey that we apply to all the establishments we visit and with which we can generate new and better services for you as an entrepreneur.
