Membership for young entrepreneurs

Starting a business comes with plenty of daily challenges. Many important activities need to be put on track, above all new customer acquisition.

Particularly during the difficult startup phase, it is crucial to have a reliable partner by one's side. Knowing whether a new business partner is solvent can save a lot of trouble. Acting quickly in the event of payment default is also imperative in order not to jeopardise the young company's cash flow.


We support you

  • when your customers default in payment
  • during new customer acquisition by providing credit-screened marketing data
  • with credit reports on your business partners
  • with free legal advice services
  • with the Campaign for young entrepreneurs: Free Membership until 2021
