Start-up and support

The economy must adapt to constant change. In our business area “start-up and support” we are ready to answer questions relating to business management.


We offer advice and events specially coordinated towards questions about setting up a business, security and also establishing and expanding business. The CCI has information on hand about handing over a business to a successor or taking over such. Aside from tips and information about funding opportunities, alternative sources of finance or the possibility of public procurement, you can also get checklists, advice about contact points and much more.

Financing an business

Be it for the start to vocational independence or for investments to strengthen and secure your enterprise: entrepreneurial projects normally need financing. A sound financing is the foundation for each successful implementation.
Various state subsidy programmes can be helpful here. We help our members to determine which funding programm fits their needs and guide them through the application process.

Digital Business

There are many troubles a company may face online: It might not be visible enough on the Internet, because nobody can find it on Google; you have a great product at hand, but no idea how to sell it in your online store; you can’t judge whether you are doing a good enough job with your website.
Our advisory center for online marketing, called  BIEG Hessen, can help you with all your Internet activities. It specializes in helping those companies that are too small to have a marketing department of their own, and often have to juggle limited budgets.
The services of the BIEG range from confidential individual consultations to seminars and information brochures. It also hosts an annual website competition that honors the best websites of small companies in Hesse. All of those services are impartial. All but the seminars and workshops are free.
More information are available in the section "Gründung und Förderung" on our German mainpage.
