Setting up your business and Start-up

Foundation and Start-up

It is a special concern of ours to promote start-ups in Emden. Therefore, we offer free advisory briefings and information material on the topics of business plan, financing, and funding as well as many other areas for founders. All discussions are, of course, confidential and are conducted flexibly in terms of time and, if necessary, in English. In addition, we coordinate and organise a wide range of events on topics related to foundation and start-ups.

We believe that networks are important – for entrepreneurs, but also for ourselves. That is why we organise information and networking events for founders and young companies. In addition, we cooperate with other initiatives, are a member of the Foundation network redOx and cooperate with the start-up community GOOE.

We are also a member of the Technology Centres Lower Saxony association VTN and a partner of the start-up platform of the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy.

We want the innovative environment in Emden to continue to grow.  That is why we offer the Start-up Weekend Ostfriesland once a year. Start-ups, interested parties, companies and institutions can meet in a creative environment.

Our goal is also to bring the start-up culture even further into the regional economy. We are convinced that established companies also benefit from the methods that start-ups use. This way, they too can benefit from a new boost in the development of products and services.
