Loans: help to get your start-up started

A fantastic business idea sometimes needs financial assistance to get off the ground. That’s where starter loans can help.

Subsidised loans are one such form of funding offered by the NRW.BANK to support budding entrepreneurs with their business start-ups, as well as business successions in North Rhine-Westphalia.

As well as funding in North Rhine-Westphalia, federal government and EU public loans also provide help to people starting up their own business. These also include KfW loans (information in German only).

As well as loans, the NRW.BANK has many other funding programmes in its portfolio. Details on these are available here.
