Don't forget the actual costs of setting up a company, such as notary and commercial registry fees. You and any potential partners will also need to ensure that you have the necessary minimum share or nominal capital at the time that you wish to set up a GmbH or AG (similar to Ltd. and Inc. companies).

Business Plan

The business plan serves as a communication tool for the various stakeholders involved, and particularly for your finance partners. A good business plan significantly increases your business's chances of success. Key components include the marketing and finance plan. Your product is unique, so your business plan must be as well. Work on it on an ongoing basis, adjusting it where necessary. Write it in a way that reflects the needs of your audience. Ten pages are better than fifty.
