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.

    Julius Gräler

    Julius Gräler from Münster has recently taken over the succession of the company Kootstra Rad- und Schiffsreisen. This decision was not a matter of course for him, because the 30-year-old had originally taken a completely different career path. In the joint project Gründergeist #Youngstarts Münsterland, Julius got the opportunity to exchange ideas and network with like-minded people.

When preparing for entrepreneurial independence and/or shortly after starting up, it is not uncommon for tax questions to arise that cannot or may not be answered by the tax offices in the region.

The Chamber of Tax Advisors of Westphalia-Lippe and the North Westphalia Chamber of Industry and Commerce (IHK Nord Westfalen) offer initial tax advice to prevent start-ups and young companies from falling into tax traps.

Workshop

Anyone who wants to start a business or become self-employed faces many questions. One of the most important is financing. Where do I get the money to make the transition to independence? How much equity capital is available? What subsidies are actually available? From the moment they start their business, founders should be prepared for every eventuality. All these questions will be answered in the workshop. The workshop will be held both in person and online.

Gründerschmiede online PART 1: Business plan - sustainable design

Münsterland
Virtual
Lecture

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 therefore also the prerequisite for a successful start and success with the start-up project.

Marianne Koschany-Rohbeck, start-up advisor 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. The event takes place online via Zoom.

Succession: Generation Z replaces baby boomers - What this does to the company
17.08.2022, 17:30 17.08.2022, 20:30
CoCoWo, Coesfeld
Organiser: wfc Wirtschaftsförderung Kreis Coesfeld GmbH
Workshop

When a company is handed over to a successor, both sides usually prepare intensively and regulate the handover process. One generation leaves, the next comes.

But few think about preparing the company itself for the succession. However, this is a decisive factor for success. For over many years a balance has developed between the company and the managing partners. Now other people are stepping into these roles and a new balance must be found.

In the workshop "Generation Z replaces Baby Boomers - What this does to the company", expert Hilmar Welpelo explains how this can be done in the best possible way. Because when the baby boomers leave and the next generation starts, there will undoubtedly be changes in the management of the company and thus also in the organisation as a whole. And that needs to be prepared just as much as the handover process between those handing over and those taking over.
