Gründergeist@Münsterland

The Gründergeist@Münsterland initiative was financially supported by the state of North Rhine-Westphalia and the EU as a development project until February 2019. With this start-up funding, it continues to mobilise and support people throughout Münsterland who are willing to start a business, from the initial brainstorming to a fully developed business plan. In the last three years, the initiative has facilitated the path to self-employment for many founders. After all, in the early stages of setting up a business, team, network and infrastructure are essential factors for success.

Founding successfully together

The core of the project is formed by five start-up incubators in the four districts of Münsterland and the city of Münster. Those willing to start a business are professionally accompanied and supported in working on their project idea. The participants deal with questions such as how a vague idea can become a concrete business idea or what it means to be self-employed. What steps does a person interested in starting a business have to take, when and how?

Among other things, the founders' workshops are about specifying the problems, accelerating the brainstorming and the flow of ideas by individuals or groups, broadening the direction of the search and dissolving mental blocks. With the application of creativity techniques, the "Business Model Canvas" and other methods, the business ideas are concretised and developed into a promising business model.

On 18 January 2019, the project culminated in the first regional GRÜNDERGEIST COMPETITION, which awarded the best business plan in Münsterland. Participants of the Gründerschmieden as well as all other potential founders from Münsterland were able to take part. It is planned to continue the competition every two years.

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.

Appointments are made after a preliminary discussion.

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.
