EXI Digital / Start-Up Voucher

In the beginning there is always an idea – you are wondering whether your idea can be successfully marketed as a product or service, how to start up and what you should pay attention to? Or are you already one step further and need support with your business plan or your sales strategy?

We answer all your questions about your start-up

We clarify with you individually the most important questions about founding a company. Together with the CyberForum and the Karlsruhe Economic Development Corporation, the Stuttgart Region Economic Development Corporation has designed the EXI Digital BW start-up voucher ESF Plus to offer you free start-up advice.

Advice for Start-Ups in all Industries with a digital Focus

The EXI startup voucher is open to all industries. The only requirement is that digital business models or technologies play or could play a role.

CyberForum has 25 years of experience with start-ups in the digital environment and a nationwide network. That’s why they are your competent contact for everything related to start-ups.

This is how the Start-Up Voucher works

First module: basic consulting

This is about the current status, an initial assessment of your start-up project and checking the feasibility of your business model.

You will receive valuable practical tips and together we will discuss goal-oriented further steps. If necessary, we will provide you with relevant contacts, e.g. with regard to possible funding or financing.

At the Cyberforum’s workshops and theme days, you can find out about “digital start-up projects”, “sustainability”, “financing” and “female founders” and exchange ideas with other founders. The first consultation is free of charge.

Second module: Hands-on support through special consulting

The special consulting covers topics such as the detailed development of a resilient business plan or the creation of a sales strategy and a marketing plan.

80% of the special consulting is funded by EXI start-up vouchers, and you as the founder bear only 20% of the costs (plus 19% VAT).

The special consulting is carried out by experienced, Cyberforum-accredited external consultants and active entrepreneurs, who are industry-specific and precisely matched to your needs.

Third building block: Admission to the community

From the very beginning, you will benefit from our network in Baden-Württemberg. As an EXI founder, you are also directly part of the community. Here you can exchange ideas with all current and former founders from the CyberForum.

In the information event “EXI Digital Gründungswerkstatt” you will learn what is important for a start-up. This includes, for example, the entrepreneurial personality, important legal factors and the opportunities offered by a digital business model. Some information events are in English. Just contact us for further information.
