“These values ​​resume the cycle of growth in entrepreneurship that has taken place since October 2021, but which had been interrupted in April”, says the barometer, noting that “the transport sector contributes significantly to this growth, with the constitution of a large number of new companies either since January or specifically in May”.

Even so, “the creation of companies in the first five months of 2022 is still 11% below the values ​​recorded in 2019, before the pandemic”, with “only the sectors of information and communication technologies (+26%) and real estate (+18%) already exceeding the values ​​of 2019”.

With “the vast majority of sectors” registering growth in the creation of new companies until May, the transport sector stood out, with the creation of 795 companies since January, which corresponds to a growth of 113% compared to the same period last year.

According to Informa D&B, “another sector that was also heavily penalized in the last two years - accommodation and catering - also recorded a significant growth of 37%, with 559 new companies this year”.
