Wirtschaftsförderungsgesellschaft (WFG) is a business development company formed by Vulkaneifel County and regional banks. It focuses on the economic development of the region, provides a point of contact for companies interested in the location and the available commercial space and helps start-ups in making their first steps in running their own business.
In addition to initial personal advisory consultations for entrepreneurs, the WFG also offers various information and qualification programmes as part of the “Gründen auf dem Land” (“Start-ups in the countryside”) initiative, which is also available online as a webinar from spring 2013. Both of the region’s start-up centres – the Technologie- und Gründerzentrum Daun (www.tgz-daun.de) and HIGIS (www.higis.de) in Wiesbaum – offer entrepreneurs an ideal location for starting their own business. The WFG Vulkaneifel mbH has also dedicated itself to advising and supporting companies in Vulkaneifel County on topics relating to the transfer of technology and knowledge, cooperation with universities and the recruitment and retention of specialist personnel. Other concrete services include the organisation of student and professor excursions to companies in Vulkaneifel County as well as the provision of joint stands at established recruitment fairs.
