Are you interested in a company succession? But you're not quite sure yet whether it's really something for you? Then you've come to the right place: this website not only provides all the information you need on the subject of business succession. You can also be inspired by practical examples or take part in various workshops - click through and find the offer that suits you!
Business succession as a special form of start-up in Münsterland holds great potential in the coming years. If the Germany-wide estimates of the number and structure of business successions are extrapolated to the Münsterland region, around 3,000 businesses will be available for handover between 2018 and 2022. According to the Germany-wide statistics of the Institute for SME Research in Bonn (IfM), more than half of the businesses are usually passed on within the family, just under 20 percent are passed on within the company and just under 30 percent (and thus around 900 businesses) are passed on outside the company. However, almost every second business fails to find a successor.
The project Gründergeist #Youngstarts Münsterland sets new accents in the region to strengthen the start-up culture, especially business succession in Münsterland. We offer opportunities to exchange ideas with like-minded people in workshops, to participate in online seminars or to be inspired by practical examples in our podcast series! In addition, networking events offer the opportunity to meet interesting personalities and actors in the scene, to exchange ideas and to benefit from relevant experiences.
Opportunities and risks of start-ups! Entrepreneurial role models, start-up concept or business plan, funding programmes, planning calculations
Informative evening on the topic of start-up, start-up planning and start-up roadmap
Are you considering taking over an existing company or are you already in talks to do so? For your succession planning, would you like to gain further knowledge regarding the legal and tax structuring of company succession?
Then this seminar is just right for you, because it addresses the legal and tax law structuring options for succession and gives an overview of the liability aspects as well as requirements for the management.
It is irrelevant whether you are planning a family-internal succession, an external succession or the next steps from an employment relationship.
You will start with an overview of the various forms of takeover as well as the basic principles of civil and tax law. In addition to other aspects, both the gratuitous and the remunerated takeover of a company are considered. In addition, important types of contracts, questions of liability and labour law are discussed and placed in the context of succession. The requirements for the management round off the subject area.
In addition to compact specialist knowledge, the seminar offers you the opportunity to exchange ideas with our experienced trainers and to network with other prospective successors. We will also be happy to accept topic requests when you register and pass them on to the trainer.
This seminar will take place on two consecutive dates. Your registration refers directly to both dates.
Part 1: 09.12.2021 in the time from 09:00 - 16:30 hrs.
Part 2: 27.01.2022 in the time from 09:00 - 16:30 hrs
Participation is free of charge and includes conference drinks and a midday snack.
Good planning is the be-all and end-all - also when it comes to business succession. You could imagine taking over a company or perhaps you already have concrete plans? Then take this opportunity to get information and suggestions for your succession roadmap so that you don't forget anything in your planning!
In this seminar, succession experts Britta Schulz from the Münster Chamber of Crafts and Michael Meese from the North Westphalia Chamber of Industry and Commerce will provide you with practical information on the key points to consider, possible pitfalls and fundamental aspects of a company takeover.
The recipe for success in implementing your business idea is good preparation! It is similar to sailing: the goal must be clear, the crew and the helmsman must know their tasks, the influencing factors such as the weather must be checked before setting off.
The starter workshop is aimed at people who have a start-up idea and are considering whether it is "worthwhile" pursuing it. The number of participants is limited to ten.
Speaker: Eva-Maria Siuda, Management Consultant, Gelsenkirchen

In the talk round, exciting personalities will tell you more about self-employment and taking over an existing company. Under the title "Between tradition and modernity", this time we are explicitly dedicated to succession within the family. We have invited five guests who have all taken their very own path to the top of the family business. They talk about their careers, the challenges of taking over a business and the special features as well as advantages and disadvantages of a family business. Make yourself comfortable at home, tune in digitally and experience an exciting talk show!
For business expansions, relocations, restructuring, takeovers or even reorganisations, there are interesting financing and promotion products from the state and federal governments. Together with the experts from NRW.BANK and Bürgschaftsbank, the North Westphalia Chamber of Industry and Commerce provides information about this in personal talks that end with targeted recommendations for action.
The support and advisory services are aimed at existing companies and potential successors who have a concrete need for capital and want to know more about a sustainable financing structure.
Tax and business consultants as well as representatives of the house bank are welcome to accompany the participants.
A well-structured and well thought-out business plan is not only the basis for financing discussions with banks, investors or other financiers, but also a helpful planning and final decision-making tool for or against self-employment. A viable business plan that promises a sustainable profit is the prerequisite for a successful start and success with the start-up project.
Marianne Koschany-Rohbeck, start-up consultant at gfw, explains what functions a business plan fulfils, what components it comprises, how it is drawn up and provides information on the background and pitfalls when drawing up the plan.
