Munich's Business Startup Office

Startup advice from the City of Munich

At Munich’s Business Startup Office we provide Munich citizens with basic knowledge about starting a business or working in the liberal professions. 

We offer cross-industry guidance in the following areas to help you go self-employed:

  • Start-up formalities
  • Business plan
  • Choice of legal form and tax overview
  • Social and company insurance
  • Subsidies and financial aid
  • Seminars and events
  • Office space and start-up centers

Our services are free of charge. Please note that we cannot advise on insurance, tax, or legal issues. We do not provide a business plan writing service or any statements required for the start-up grant from the Federal Employment Agency or for the start-up allowance from the Jobcenter. We have compiled and checked the content of this site with great care.
