The better prepared you are for these interviews, the greater your chances of receiving the start-up funding. With the AVGS voucher, we coach founders. After the coaching, you will have all the skills and knowledge you need for your self-employment.

BUSINESS PLAN

The business plan as the heart of your start-up phase

Your business plan is a valuable guide for you. When we talk to you about the contents, you become more aware of many things – just by saying them. You will understand connections even better and with a good, honest business plan you will have a clear vision for your entrepreneurial future. A vision that is worthwhile!

The business plan is also an important document for the employment agency and other potential financiers, which contributes significantly to the decision-making process. You can see how important a convincing business plan is. So it is only logical to have the business plan drawn up with professional support.

With a convincing business plan, you start the discussions with your agent in a completely different way. Data and facts give you security and strengthen your self-confidence. A transparent, complete execution of the business plan has a positive effect on the assessment by your intermediary. With the activation and placement voucher, our services for creating your business plan are 100% free.

The business start-up subsidy for ALG 1 recipients

If you are still entitled to unemployment benefits for at least 150 days, you can apply for a start-up grant from the Employment Agency. If your application is approved, you will receive the subsidy for up to 15 months. In the first 6 months, you will receive an additional sum of 300 euros on top of the normal unemployment benefit 1. You can receive this 300 Euro for another 9 months if you prove that you need the money for social security. You provide proof of this in your business plan.

The start-up grant from the employment agency is an optional benefit, i.e. a matter of personal discretion. You have no legal claim to it. It is therefore all the more important that you prepare yourself perfectly for the talks with the decision-maker.

Start-up money and investment subsidy from ALG 2

Even if you receive unemployment benefit 2, i.e. Hartz IV, you can apply for subsidies to start your own business. With the start-up allowance, you receive 24 months of support – in addition to the standard benefit. The amount of the subsidy is usually 50% of the standard benefit. In addition, there is also the chance of an investment grant of up to 5,000 euros. This investment grant is used for the purchase of operating equipment, vehicles, business equipment, etc.


A prerequisite is that you must work at least 15 hours per week on a full-time basis in your planned self-employment. Here, too, the office checks the viability of your business idea and whether you are personally suitable for self-employment.
