About us: #GründenNRW
For a competitive and vibrant start-up in North Rhine-Westphalia.
The state of North Rhine-Westphalia wants to provide entrepreneurs with the best possible conditions to pave their way towards self-employment.
For this reason, the Ministry of Economic Affairs, Innovation, Digitisation and Energy of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia has set up ‘Gründen NRW’ – a state initiative that heralds an era of new business start-ups.
In an age when markets are expanding with ever-increasing speed and increasingly specific niches are emerging, business founders need support and a wealth of advice.
To ensure that businesses receive the best possible information, advice and support, and an environment in which they can make continuous progress, the ‘Gründen NRW’ initiative is based on ten pillars:
The state government has created the ‘Neue Gründerzeit Nordrhein-Westfalen’ concept (in German only) with the objective of strategically positioning the region for business start-ups. The aim is to further improve the climate for start-ups and to generate the most start-ups in Germany in the next five years. The Minister for the Economy and Digitisation, Prof. Andreas Pinkwart, together with partners within the state, has presented a joint statement. In this statement, the group sets out the areas of focus for the collaboration and agrees on the key measures for implementing a ‘Neue Gründerzeit Nordrhein-Westfalen’ initiative.
The concept of “Neue Gründerzeit” in North Rhine-Westphalia was published together with the Joint Declaration on the Neue Gründerzeit in North Rhine-Westphalia on 18 July 2019.
