Search engine optimization
Entrepreneurs in the start-up phase have a lot to do – talks with consultants, banks, landlords, suppliers … Today, a website of its own is part of a professional company – but it must also be found! Google – meanwhile a synonym for the search on the Internet – has an immense range, from which one can only profit, if one deals with their requirements. In the lecture „How do I get on Google at the top?“, The foundations of search engine optimization are mediated – so that even young companies can be found well. Markus Hövener from Bloofusion Germany GmbH gives valuable tips in his keynote.

Best Practice Examples
Firstly, however, there is a „best practice“ round with examples from 20 years of coordination of the business start-up in Steinfurt. This round will not only look at what might be different today in foundations than 20 years ago, but also what mistakes can be avoided. 3 companies from the region are available to answer questions.

Stage free … for those present
All participants of the infotage can throw their business card (or a counterpart) into the drum to the raffle and with a bit of luck present their business idea or company spontaneously to the audience. „This is a great opportunity for young companies to increase their own degree of recognition“, organizer Helga Reckenfelderbäumer from the business development and development company Steinfurt (WESt) encourages all interested parties to participate in the raffle.

Silicon Valley
A highlight is the interview with Carlo Jesse, founder of the successful Internet platform www.wirkauf-ihrauto.de . As the winner of the „German Accelerator Contest“, he was given the opportunity to look for three months in the Silicon Valley ( the founding mecca in the digital field). It is connected via Skype live from the USA! From Markus Hövener (see above), the participants then learn what has changed since his stay there and what he has learned there.

Even for those who play with the idea of ​​independence and always doubt, there is an offer. In the impulse talk „From the daring to the heart of business“ one can recognize and find concrete first steps. Speaker Dr. Gudrun Schwarzer from Wishcraft’s success counseling is authorized to translate the books of the American co-founder of the LifeCoaching – Barbara Sher – and to carry out seminars and success teams.

Funding Opportunities
A good idea, but the equity is not enough. What can I do? Are there public loans for smaller projects? But if it has to be more and not enough collateral, can I still finance a financing? Is there still public funding possibilities, if I have already founded and eg extend or relocate? Guido Hellmer, NRW.BANK’s advisory consultant, has the answers to these questions in the stimulus package „Financing before and after founding“.

„Cave of Lions“
A special highlight of this infotage is the keynote by Felix Thönnessen, candidate coach in the successful VOX format „Cave of Lions“. The lively „Coach Felix“ reports alive and vividly about his experiences with the foundations founded on him and has many good advice for the audience. His keynote „Successful foundations – learning from mistakes“ completes the offer of this infotage for young companies and entrepreneurs.

distances At the Infostände at the parallel fair you will find contact persons from the main organizations around the topic of founding. In addition to the founding network partners (the agency for work Rheine, Chamber of Crafts Münster, Kreishandwerkschaft Steinfurt-Warendorf, Chamber of Commerce North Rhine Westphalia, Sparkassen in the district Steinfurt, Volksbanken in the circle Steinfurt) are the finance office, the DEHOGA Westfalen, the HOGA Betriebsberatung, the Steuerberaterkammer, the AOK, the Deutsche Rentenversicherung, the Bürgschaftsbank NRW, NRW.Bank, among others. In this way the participants save a lot of effort: health and pension insurance, finance office, financial institutions and chambers – all on site and on a Friday afternoon reachable!
