Founding your own company gives you the opportunity to develop your skills and talents, to put your ideas into action and be your "own boss". However, regardless of how good the idea is, competent professional advice concentrated on the essentials is a great help when addressing this complicated task.


BUSINESS PLAN

The business plan is the soul and guideline of your company. It summarizes your thoughts into words. With it, you convince financiers, suppliers and partners.

We edit, correct and improve your concept. We tell you what is important when you have not even started to write. We give impetus to potential business areas. We will review your financial planning. We give in the truest sense of the word: guidance. Many companies supported by our guidance to their idea have won competitions and received awards.


Subsidies

Nowhere in the world is there so much public support for start-ups as in Germany. We will help you to get an overview of the possibilities.

Are your start-up plans based on an innovative and technology-oriented idea? The „Coaching Bonus" program and the project "Innovation brauchen Mut" (IbM), provide subsidized coaching.

Is your start-up project innovative, technology-based or knowledge-based and are you a student or graduate of a university? Then the "EXIST Gründerstipendium" or "EXIST Forschungstransfer" are a possibility.

If your business idea is neither innovative nor knowledge-based, you can apply for substantial grants for coaching costs to „Gründercoaching Deutschland“ via the KfW Mittelstandsbank.

Here you will find a more detailed overview of the various funding opportunities. We specialize in the Berlin-Brandenburg region and help you to filter out the right products for your project and apply for appropriate grants.


FINANcING

Although over half of all start-ups in Germany start with a capital of less than 1,000 EUR. This sum is not enough for many start-ups. Financing in the seed-stage is often a problem.

Our offer for you:

  • We work with you to clarify your actual capital requirements.
  • We design a soundly structured financial plan.
  • We clarify which financial instruments are suitable for your concept: e.g. Berlin Start, Gründung Innovativ at ILB or the KfW-Startgeld.
  • We discuss with you whether your foundation may be of interest for VC or Business Angels and provide contacts with investors.
  • We will accompany you to financial discussions with banks.
  • We support you when making applications to "High-Tech Gründerfonds" (HTGF).

APPLICATION PROCEDURES

Whoever is preparing to found their own company will quickly realize that there are a lot of bureaucratic and organizational issues. We will be at your side with support when strategic decisions are necessary and help you to create a stable foundation, because that is the prerequisite for your successful business.

We help you find the right answers to the following questions:

  • Am I a trader or freelancer?
  • What legal form is right for me?
  • Where can I get a tax number/VAT ID number?
  • How do I register with the trade office?
  • Am I a "small business" as defined in §19 UStG?
  • How does sales tax function?
  • Employing Workers - What should I do?

To all these questions (and those which may not yet have occurred to you), please feel free to contact us for competent answers. In answering these questions we work closely with Prof. Jacobsen Steuerberatungsgesellschaft mbH.
