We cannot provide start-up capital. You must finance the project yourself. We can, however, provide funding for various key measures and services in the run-up to starting a business, including the preparation of market and competition analyses, provision of legal and/or technical advice, travel to your country of origin to explore business opportunities and establish contacts and much more. Financial support is capped at EUR 5,000. Start-ups also receive general coaching in business planning and implementation, which is provided by an external service provider.
Start-ups from Cameroon, Morocco and Tunisia are supported as part of the MEETAfrica programme, which is co-financed by the EU, and receive benefits such as general coaching in business planning and implementation up to a maximum of EUR 15,000.
With a strong business idea, you also have a good chance of acquiring additional financing from other providers. After all, many developing countries and emerging economies are extremely interested in foreign investments and know-how and therefore actively support the business activities of migrants. We can help you to find suitable financing options. A preliminary overview of potential providers can be found in the lists of links for our respective partner countries.
