Freelancers as founders of new companies

Business start-ups for freelancers are possible in various legal forms or types of cooperation.

To build up an existence as a freelancer, first of all you have to plan how you can realize your project (e.g. location, price). The needs of potential clients and the existing competition play a decisive role. If you plan a business start-up, you should get advice as early on as possible and above all clarify the financial part of your enterprise.

Please take into consideration when planning your marketing measures that specific advertising restrictions (Werbebeschränkungen) apply for the liberal professions.
