Master Craftswoman/Craftsman Start-up Bonus: Promotion of the trade
The state of North Rhine-Westphalia wants to promote master craftsmen and women. As a grant, there is, for example, the Master Craftswoman/Craftsman Start-up Bonus (MGP), which promotes business start-ups or company takeovers and investments.
Startercenter NRW offers start-up help to ensure that your first steps on the path to self-employment are successful: advice and information on business formations and company development are available at 75 locations nationwide.
North Rhine-Westphalia is seeking to further stimulate the appetite for digital start-ups in future. The state government wants to increase the appeal of digital start-ups and spin-offs and establish an outstanding nationwide and international start-up scene.
Excellent research should also lead to excellent start-ups. To make sure it does, the state has set up the Exzellenz Start-up Centers.NRW, which are based in outstanding research locations in North Rhine-Westphalia.
