The project Gründergeist #Youngstarts Münsterland aims to strengthen the start-up intensity in Münsterland. As a successor initiative to the established project Gründergeist@Münsterland, which supported people who wanted to start a business from the initial idea to the business plan, Gründergeist #Youngstarts Münsterland now aims to tap into new start-up potential and target groups with target group-specific offers. The project focuses on two areas: school and business succession.
With the help of (online) workshops, video tutorials and other supporting materials, the project offers pupils a platform on which they can independently develop and present start-up ideas. The goal is to take part in the ideas competition in autumn 2022: Here, the students can present their ideas with short presentation videos and win great prizes.
The area of business succession focuses on another target group: Potential successors for taking over a business, who are to be supported in their possible decision for succession. For this purpose, offers such as workshops, networking events and a podcast are available to those interested.
The project is funded within the framework of the ERDF call "Regio.NRW" and works with the following project partners: Technologieförderung Münster GmbH, Wirtschaftsförderung Kreis Coesfeld GmbH, Wirtschaftsförderungsgesellschaft für den Kreis Borken mbH, Wirtschaftsförderungs- und Entwicklungsgesellschaft Steinfurt mbH, gfw - Gesellschaft für Wirtschaftsförderung im Kreis Warendorf mbH, Technologieförderung Münster GmbH, TAFH Münster GmbH. Further supporters are the North Westphalia Chamber of Industry and Commerce, the Münster Chamber of Crafts, the Westphalian Wilhelms University Münster and the Westphalian University of Applied Sciences.

Unfortunately, no one has an infinite amount of time. Information quickly becomes obsolete, more and more flexibility is demanded and lack of time and stress are part of everyday life. If new tasks are added as a company successor or founder of a company, it can easily happen that one is controlled from the outside and only makes few self-determined decisions. Therefore, it is becoming more and more important to use the limited time available as a company manager wisely. This workshop shows how this can be done.
Speaker Katja Dittmar (DiLaPe Human Resources Development) will explain how to set priorities, assess management tasks correctly in terms of time and use the five areas of self-management "goals", "self-determination", "priorities", "plan" and "motivation".
Arrived at your job, found a flat, but still haven't met enough people? Then meet other newcomers from Münsterland in a special atmosphere at the harbour in Münster. During a one-hour guided tour of the harbour, participants discover the contrasting spectrum of pubs, art and culture and let themselves be enchanted by the trendy district around the harbour.
After the tour, the evening will end in a cosy atmosphere at the Hafenkäserei. Of course, you can also try one or two cheese specialities. A nice setting to get to know other newcomers to the region and to make contacts.
The official Corona rules apply and will be communicated shortly before the event.
Participation is free of charge. You are invited by the Onboarding@Münsterland service of Münsterland e.V.
Above all, entrepreneurship means adapting to a wide range of changes in order to remain competitive in the future. Changes are imminent, for example, in the context of a company succession. In order for the change to be successful, it helps to have an eye on the current economic challenges and to take a direction that successful companies have already taken.
Marianne Koschany-Rohbeck, Senior Consultant at gfw in the district of Warendorf and authorised management consultant of the Offensive Mittelstand, uses a company check (using the example of the topics of leadership and corporate culture) to teach how to recognise the need for action in the company and how to initiate change processes.
