Business Ideas for Development addresses people with a migration history living in Germany who would like to start a business in their country of origin. Not any business, but a business that will contribute to positive, sustainable development in the respective country of origin.

BID assists you before, during and after setting up your business.

We provide you with a budget of EUR 7,000 that you can use to finance services
that are essential to starting your business.

We also offer:

  • Six months of support and coaching in Germany and in your country of origin
  • Support in deepening your market research and optimising your business plan
