Obtain expert opinion from the Chamber of Industry and Commerce for start-up grants

Questions about funding should first be clarified with the responsible employment agency. There you also submit the application for a start-up grant.

A prerequisite for the start-up grant from the employment agency is that an expert body has examined your business idea and considers it viable. You can choose the contact person for the statement. This can be, for example.B the Chamber of Industry and Commerce.

During the load-bearing capacity test, your foundation concept is checked for plausibility and traceability. The decisive factor is whether you can make a living from the implementation of the business idea after a start-up phase.

In addition to the Chamber of Commerce and Industry, other bodies can also assess the viability of your project:

  • Chambers of Crafts,
  • professional chambers,
  • Professional associations
  • Credit institutions
  • Other (tax consultants, auditors, start-up initiatives, etc.)

In case of justified doubts, the Employment Agency may again request the submission of an opinion from a competent body.
