Having an idea is not difficult - but developing it, bringing it to life, implementing it and marketing it is. But whoever dares wins - and the Münsterland supports you in doing so.
Because nowhere in NRW is it more likely than in Münsterland that a business or company start-up will be permanently successful . This high quality of start-ups is typical of the people of Münsterland, who like to dare to make a new start, but first think it through and plan it thoroughly. In figures: On average, 42 percent of the founders in Münsterland are still on the market after five years. The NRW average is only 36.4 percent, and this development continues in the following years.
ou have an exciting idea in mind? You are a problem solver and like to be your own boss? Then founding is exactly the right thing for you! Numerous exciting personalities have already taken this path and been successful. Also in Münsterland. Because there is a great variety of new business ideas in the region, the participants in the last Gründergeist competition are just one example of this.
Many service providers in Münsterland have also decided to take this step and become self-employed with tax consultancies, architecture offices, cleaning services or travel agencies, for example. And: The number of start-ups in the manufacturing industry has risen particularly quickly in recent years.
You want to take this step? Wonderful! Then the team of the project Gründergeist #Youngstarts Münsterland is the right place for you. Here you can get more information and tailor-made support.
The state of NRW also provides a lot of information for potential founders. You can find out more about financing, possible competitions, start-up stories and advisory services at www.gründen.nrw.
Do you dream of having your own carpentry workshop? Or can you imagine running a hotel one day? Exciting ideas! Have you ever thought about a business succession? Because there is a lot of potential in this. If you extrapolate the Germany-wide estimates of the number and structure of business successions to the Münsterland region, around 3,000 businesses are up for handover between 2018 and 2022. Slightly more than half of the businesses will be passed on within the family, just under 20 percent within the company and just under one third outside the company. Regardless of which form is suitable for you,you have the chance to become self-employed, to build on what you already have and to realise your own potential!

Unfortunately, very few of us have 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. Therefore, it is becoming more and more important, especially as a company successor, to manage your time wisely. In the workshop, speaker Katja Dittmar will show how to set priorities, correctly assess management tasks in terms of time and use the five self-management areas of "goals", "self-determination", "priorities", "plan" and "motivation" for oneself.
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".
Along with the ability to change, corporate culture has become a central competitive factor for companies and organisations. Only those who change not only structures, processes and technology but also the thinking, attitude and culture of cooperation will be able to be successful in the long term in the increasingly complex and uncertain market environment. How this can be achieved is the topic of our 15th DIALOG Fachkräftesicherung on Wednesday, 27 October. The event will take place digitally.
