Grant towards consultancy costs for start-ups:
Business Consultancy Programme

Are you planning to set up your own business? Do you need sound advice from a professional business consultant or tax adviser? Then why not get in touch with GFW Duisburg and take advantage of the opportunity to apply for a grant towards the costs of a Business Consultancy Programme? Grants of up to 50% are available for these consultancy services from the North Rhine-Westphalian Ministry of Economic Affairs, Energy, Industry, SMEs and Crafts and the European Union. GFW Duisburg’s funding advisers will explain the details in a personal consultation.

GFW Duisburg and the Lower Rhine Chamber of Industry and Commerce (IHK) for Duisburg-Wesel-Kleve are the contact points for this grant programme.

Grant towards consultancy costs for companies in at least their third year of business:
Potential Consultancy Programme

Are you facing major business challenges? Globalisation, digitisation and restructuring are just a few of the buzzwords associated with structural change. Why not take advice from professional business consultants and/or tax advisers?

In order to safeguard and increase company competitiveness and jobs, North Rhine-Westphalia uses resources from the European Social Fund to subsidise a “potential consultancy” service. The funds are used to subsidise consultancy services for companies in at least their third year of business. The consultancy programme establishes the company’s strengths and weaknesses, taking into account all the company functions. It also develops an action plan to improve business processes, and initiates the first implementation steps. Anyone in the target group who would like to apply for the Potential Consultancy Programme can do so in Duisburg through us – GFW Duisburg – and through our partners: the Lower Rhine Chamber of Industry and Commerce (IHK) and Regionalagentur Niederrhein.
