As a result of the Corona pandemic, many restaurateurs as well as food producers and traders have had to rethink and are reinventing themselves in the crisis. Courage and creativity are important qualities that are currently paying off. Using digitalisation profitably is therefore the order of the day. This is where the funding programmes of the federal government and the state come in, which support the development of new business models.
In an online seminar, the Münsterland-Siegel, Münsterland e.V. and Dehoga Westfalen provided further information on the funding opportunities. The online seminar was recorded - interested parties can watch it again below.
In two idea labs, entrepreneurs, founders and representatives of educational institutions and business development agencies developed concrete concepts of what Work 4.0 could look like in the region. The working groups then presented their results to the entire plenum in a pitch. The idea labs, which the Münsterland Regional Agency offered together with the Digital Hub münsterLAND, are part of the dialogue process "NRW 4.0 - Good and Fair Work" of the NRW Ministry of Labour. All results of the 16 regional agencies in NRW can be read on the Ideas Map 4.0.
The Enabling Innovation Festival on 11 April showed the diverse possibilities and opportunities of digitalisation. The programme included keynotes and interactive lectures, workshops and various offers to try out. The focus of the festival, which was organised by Enabling Innovation Münsterland, the Regional Agency Münsterland and the Digital Hub münsterLAND, was also on casual networking and the exchange of ideas. A review and impressions can be found here.
Finding new perspectives, getting to know previously unknown jobs: this is what the Regional Agency's events for securing skilled labour are all about. One example is the Trainee Day at Münster/Osnabrück Airport (FMO), which the Münsterland Regional Agency organised together with the Employment Agency and FMO. Almost 20 pupils experienced the everyday life of various apprenticeship professions and then dealt intensively with the topics again for various newspaper articles.
Setting up your own business should be well prepared in advance. This online event will provide answers to the most important questions: What belongs in a business plan? Which funding programmes can I take advantage of? What does company and private insurance look like? And what registration formalities do I have to go through?
This one-hour online seminar is designed to give founders an introduction to the topic and an overview of the next steps. The speakers are the experienced business consultants of the Münster Chamber of Skilled Crafts.
Speaker: Norbert Kortenjan
For companies, so-called direct marketing, i.e. the direct and targeted approach of customers for advertising purposes, is an excellent means of acquiring new customers and maintaining existing customer relationships. To the chagrin of many companies, however, direct marketing is strictly regulated. Most recently, the legislature passed the "Fair Consumer Contracts Act", which is intended to improve the protection of consumers from unwanted advertising calls.
This free online event provides an overview of the current requirements for legally compliant direct marketing.
Addressed are specialists and managers with an interest in direct marketing and the associated legal circumstances, as well as students of various Bachelor's and Master's degree programmes.
