Dubai – Many innovative but financially weak start-ups in Europe are desperately seeking alternative sources of financing. In Germany in particular, company founders have great difficulty in obtaining conventional bank loans. The financial shortage makes many start-ups think about moving abroad. According to various studies, such as a Bitkom study, this now applies to every fourth start-up. The capital provided in Germany is simply too scarce to run a successful business. In 2019, German founders needed an average of around 3.2 million euros to secure their existence over the next two years. This is 100,000 euros more than in 2018 and even 700,000 euros more than in 2017.
