You just need a good idea, a brilliant one is even better, of course. Moreover, you have to know some facts about formal and legal requirements, about your USPs and incentives for your customers.
The most important thing, however, is your target group. What are they doing now? How do they work, drink, read and live. How much do they earn, are they singles, do they have children, a cat or a dog? The more you know the better you can advertise.
And what about financing: Are you interested in crowdfunding or in conventional credits or business loans?
How much are you willing to spend on a professional layout? Do you know the difference between turnover and profit? What kind of taxes do you have to pay?  Are you a real business founder? Are you willing to take risks, and do you have a strong motivation? Are you prepared to work hard? Do you have enough self-confidence und sense of responsibility, besides charisma and willpower?
And last but not least: What are your competitive advantages?

All these questions will be part of our one-day crash-course!

In addition, we will give you useful tips and tricks on how to start a business in Germany.
You will get a handout with the most important information.
And if you wish, we will translate your business plan for you. Because all German banks insist on a business plan written in German.
