The funding programme KOMPASS aims to support full-time solo self-employed people by promoting qualifications to consolidate their business model.
In essence, solo self-employed people are to be enabled through central further training measures to make their business model as crisis-proof (more) and future-proof (more) as possible. The focus is on the further development or safeguarding of the business model, the use of new workplace technologies or the company's ability to change and be fit for the future. Up to 90% (maximum € 4,500) of the qualification costs can be covered.
The funding requirements and the need for qualification are determined during a counselling interview.
The project is funded by the Federal Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs and the European Union via the European Social Fund Plus (ESF Plus) as part of the "COMPASS-Compact Help for Solo Self-Employed Persons" programme.
