Wirtschaftsförderung Dortmund

Since 2001 the annual start2grow competition, initiated by the Dortmund Economic Development Agency has been taking place annually. Founders from all over Germany can participate. Registration is possible at any time and it is free of charge.
Start2Grow is not just a competition; it offers a range of options. For example, the Coaching Network offers contacts for support with writing, submitting and reviewing the business plan. Events (seminars and workshops) provide information and contacts. A downloadable manual (also in English) accompanies startups in the process of structuring their business plan. The Start2Grow competition offers the chance to win prize money of € 15.000 and support with business plan development as well as individual coaching.
