I already founded my business; can I still receive the grant?

The establishment of a corporation and the start of business before the start of the funded project excludes the promotion through EXIST business start-up grant. Established corporations cannot be promoted, even if they want to operate in a new business field or want to bring a new product / service to market.
Serial founders cannot be promoted. If you are only a shareholder of a company but have no active role as a manager or employee, then the promotion can be granted by individual decision. There should be no regular income from it though in order to avoid deadweight effects of the funding. The registration of a business, e.g. as a freelancer in the field of software development or consulting activities are not a formal reason for exclusion from the EXIST business start-up grant.
