About us: Neue Gründerzeit Nordrhein-Westfalen
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 ‘Neue Gründerzeit Nordrhein-Westfalen’ – 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 ‘Neue Gründerzeit Nordrhein-Westfalen’ 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 joint declaration on the ‘Neue Gründerzeit Nordrhein-Westfalen’ (in German only) has been ratified within the Ministry of Economics by the NRW Chamber of Industry and Commerce, the NRW Tradesmen’s Guild, NRW business owners, NRWalley – Federal Association of German Start-ups, those promoting the NRW local economy and development agencies in North Rhine-Westphalia.
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.
