Since the startup strategy was approved in the summer of 2022, the federal government has already implemented more than 40 percent of the measures. This is shown by the first progress report on the implementation of the startup strategy, which was published last week. The improved framework conditions should enable young and innovative companies to grow even faster and thus make a decisive contribution to the development and competitiveness of the entire German and European economy.
Federal Minister of Economics Dr. Robert Habeck explains: “I am proud that we have made such good progress in implementing the startup strategy. New financing instruments and funding programs have been launched, important laws have been passed or are on the way. All of this shows: We want and will make Germany an even more attractive start-up location that is also at the top internationally. We will continue to work on this in the federal government and also together with the community.”
The BMWK representative for the digital economy and startups, Dr. Anna Christmann is satisfied: “We have achieved a lot in just one year. The Future Financing Act will be a real game changer. With this we want to finally solve the dry income problem in Germany. I advocated that this should also apply to larger start-ups. In the future it will be much more attractive to involve employees in the startups and thus in their success.”
In the first progress report, the federal government reports in detail on the status of the implementation of the startup strategy. The report was presented and discussed at an event with the startup community at the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Protection. Federal Minister Dr. Robert Habeck takes part. The BMWK provides information about the progress and makes the report available for download at www.startupstrategie.bmwk.de.
