Graduates of a university will receive in future a monthly start-up grant of 2,500 euros instead of 2,000 euros a month. In addition, the funds for investment in the EXIST Business Start-up Grant and the EXIST Transfer of Research be raised significantly. The subsidy for investments in start-up teams is to be tripled from 70,000 today to up to 250,000 euros in future in the framework of the EXIST Transfer of Research. The higher funding requirements for the construction of demonstration systems and prototypes will so be taken into account."
