Start-up Business Coaching Process

Do you want to take advantage of KfW-business start-up coaching?

Ideally, this is how you go about it:

  1. You can file an application online - and also identify a KfW consultant of choice – at the KfW-application platform. (My consultant ID no. is 25858). Hand in the application for start-up business coaching to one of the KfW's regional partners. Upon request, I would be happy to assist you in filling out the form.
  2. For Berlin, the appropriate body for your application is the Chamber of Commerce and Industry (IHK) in Berlin-Charlottenburg (Fasanenstraße 85, 10623 Berlin, switchboard: 030 /315 10 - 0; Franziska Piatke is the POC) or the Chamber of Trades (Handwerkskammer) in Berlin-Kreuzberg (Blücherstraße 68, 10961 Berlin, 6. Etage, switchboard: 030 /259 0301)
  3. Once you are given green light by the KfW, you can conclude a coaching contract with the desired consultant (I use the standard KFW contract).
  4. At the conclusion of the coaching services, submit the total invoice together with a so-called "Schlussverwendungsnachweis" issued by your coach, as well as evidence that you have paid your share of the costs by way of a bank account statement directly to the KfW. You will also receive a coaching report documenting the results of the coaching sessions.
  5. In the event that paying the total coaching fee all at once is not feasible for you, I offer the possibility of settling you bill directly with the KfW. This is possible using a so-called declaration of assignment (Abtretungserklärung) which eliminates the need of paying the whole sum in advance.
  6. In this case, the KfW will pay the consulting grant either to you or – with a declaration of assignment – to me.

Do you have any further questions?

Don't let yourself be deterred by red tape!

Contact me or schedule a non-binding first interview (even at short notice if you are in a hurry!). During this interview, we can jointly gauge your particular start-up situation and determine what your coaching needs are. Naturally, I can also assist you in an unbureaucratic manner with the application for grants.
