What does it take for a successful start-up? An inspiring business idea - that's clear. But no less important is secure start-up financing. Because if money runs out in the early stages, a company can fail - even if the concept was actually really good. The most common financing options can be divided into four categories, namely: Own funds, bank loans, public subsidies/loans and equity capital.
The state knows that it can be difficult for young companies and founders to obtain a bank loan. At the same time, it has an interest in seeing many innovative business ideas implemented and new companies founded. After all, they create jobs and help to modernize the economy as a whole and keep it competitive. That's why he supports founders with a variety of measures.
In addition to free consulting services, scholarships or grants, development loans in particular play a role in public start-up support. They are characterized by favorable interest rates and long terms. In addition, a grace period of up to three years is often granted. This protects liquidity, especially in the initial phase, when costs are high and sales increase only slowly.
Promotional lenders are regional players - above all the promotional institutes of the federal states, in Brandenburg the "Investitionsbank des Landes Brandenburg" (ILB), and nationwide players - above all the KfW. However, most development loans are extended via the house bank, which means that a decision is made at the respective house bank as to whether a development loan should be included in the financing, and it is checked whether the documents are sufficient.
