Databases: overview of funding and more

Which funding programme is the right one? There is a variety of programmes available. Databases provide an overview.

With the multitude of existing funding and consultancy services, it is often not easy to get an overview of them all. You can of course access the various consultancy services in North Rhine-Westphalia to find the answer to your question.

However, various databases that group together these services, enabling them to be filtered by the relevant criteria, can also help here.

Funding in North Rhine-Westphalia

Offers of funding specifically for the state of North Rhine-Westphalia are brought together in the NRW.BANK product search (in German only). This is where you will find information on loans and finance for various types of business start-up.

The Federal Ministry for the Economy and Energy also offers a comprehensive funding database on the foerderdatenbank.de website (in German only). This includes funding programmes available from the European Union, as well as at national and federal state level.
