ggf. zzgl. Versand

Existenzgründung ist der persönliche Weg in die unternehmerische Selbstständigkeit. Der Unternehmer entwickelt und verwirklicht in Freiheit und Selbstverantwortung die Idee, die er als Person verkörpert. Existenzgründung in diesem Sinne ist deutlich zu unterscheiden von einem Gründungsmanagement, das sich darauf reduziert, die Unternehmensgründung rational zu managen. Nach unserem Verständnis bedeutet Existenzgründung die Beantwortung der Frage, wofür der Gründer mit seiner Person am Markt stehen kann und will. Inhalt dieser Publikation ist eine Beschreibung des Gründungsprozesses, der im Gründungsprozess entstehenden Probleme sowie der Angebote, die die Gründungsberatung zu ihrer Lösung macht. Zudem beschreiben wir, welche Chancen und Risiken mit den Finanzierungsformen des Eigenkapitals, des Fremdkapitals und des Venture-Capitals einher gehen und welche Unterstützung die Gründungsförderung anbietet. Professor Dr. Gerd Walger ist Gründer und geschäftsführender Direktor des IUU Institut für Unternehmer- und Unternehmensentwicklung und Professor für Betriebswirtschaftslehre der Universität Witten/Herdecke. Dipl.-Ök. Ralf Neise ist Gründungsberater und Lehrbeauftragter für Unternehmensgründung.

ggf. zzgl. Versand

Junge Unternehmen werden als zentrale Initiatoren bei der Entwicklung bedeutender Innovationen und gesamtwirtschaftlicher Wachstumsimpulse betrachtet. Zugleich ist aber die Überlebenswahrscheinlichkeit junger Unternehmen mitunter recht gering. Vor diesem Hintergrund wird untersucht, ob die Finanzierung eines jungen Unternehmens mit Wagniskapital (Venture Capital, VC) zur Reduktion der Mortalitätswahrscheinlichkeit beitragen kann und welche Bedeutung dieser Finanzierungsform für die Entwicklung der Reputation junger Unternehmen im Rahmen der unternehmerischen Legitimierung zukommt. In Anlehnung an die bestehende Forschung zum Themenkomplex VC besteht das Ziel darin, die Erkenntnisse der wissenschaftlichen Legitimationsforschung weiterzuentwickeln und für junge Unternehmen nutzbar zu machen. Dr. Siegrun Brink ist wissenschaftliche Mitarbeiterin am Lehrstuhl für Betriebswirtschaftslehre, insb. Personalmanagement und Organisation an der Universität Wuppertal.

Immer mehr Menschen gehen nach Feierabend ihren Leidenschaften nach und gründen nebenher. Für ein solches 4-Stunden-Startup braucht man kein Büro in Berlin und kein Venture-Capital, sondern bloß Neugier, Mut und Leidenschaft. Neben der Denkweise von Start-up-Gründern stellt Felix Plötz die Tools vor, um außergewöhnliche Ideen schnell und günstig zu testen und professionell umzusetzen. Er erklärt u.a., wie Crowdfunding funktioniert und wie man dem Vorgesetzten am besten verklickert, dass man künftig pünktlich aus dem Büro geht, um demnächst selbst Chef zu sein. Echte Beispiele zeigen, welche Ideen andere umgesetzt haben - und dadurch ihr Leben spannender, selbstbestimmter und finanziell unabhängiger wurde. Das 4-Stunden-Start-up zeigt die vielfältigen Chancen, neben dem Job die eigene Idee als kleines Business aufzuziehen - und so ein erfüllteres Leben zu führen. Felix Plötz; * 1983, ist Dipl.-Wirtschaftsingenieur und arbeitete in einem Großkonzern, als er parallel sein erstes Startup gründete, das er mittlerweile erfolgreich verkauft hat. Seine bisherigen Bücher erschienen im Selbstverlag und erreichten Bestseller #1-Status zu den Themen Motivation und Selbstständigkeit auf Amazon.

Masters Thesis from the year 2017 in the subject Business economics - Company formation, Business Plans, grade: 1,5, Berlin School of Economics and Law (Berlin Professional School), course: MBA Master Thesis, language: English, abstract: This thesis examines how a software start-up can effectively shape its internationalization process to secure its market position and to achieve a sustainable competitive advantage. To formulate possible recommendations, a literature study and a descriptive case study are carried out. The literature review considers the research domains of born globals, or rather, international new ventures, which describe the emergence of young, small and fast internationalized organizations. Furthermore, the literature study also reflects relevant theoretical explanations and frameworks such as: resource-based theory, knowledge-based view, dynamic capabilities, organizational learning, innovation theory, and international entrepreneurship. On this theoretical basis, study propositions are derived, which are then tested against the case study. The study consists of two cases and describes the internationalization process of two software start-ups. The results of the case study are then compared with the study propositions. Deviations are discussed in detail later. Finally, 24 recommendations are made which can support the effective internationalization process of a software start-up.

After all, everyone creates and confronts failure on a daily basis. Why not use it to your advantage?
