Helpful support programs for SMEs

Many small and medium-sized enterprises in Bavaria are currently struggling with the effects of the COVID 19 pandemic and the Ukraine conflict. The lack of turnover – with costs continuing or even rising in most cases – is very problematic. In addition, non-optimal processes, inefficiencies or a lack of digitalisation often play a decisive role. These problems can often not be solved independently. This is usually due to the employees’ operational blindness, lack of experience or non-existent networks. However, in times when funds are scarce anyway, the costs for high-quality consultants are also saved. There are numerous support programs with certified consultants, such as Reinhold Wanner from Wanner GmbH. Mr Wanner specialises precisely in the needs of small and medium-sized enterprises.

In the following, we briefly present some helpful support programs. For further information, please call 08631 / 940 22 99 or send us an e-mail. Just send us a short message with your request to The confidential treatment of all enquiries is part of our corporate values.


Here we offer support in overcoming problems and challenges in the areas of personnel and leadership, health management or knowledge & competence. Typical consulting areas are increasing turnover and earnings, creating efficient work processes, succession planning and many more. Up to 80% of the consultancy costs are subsidised.

unternehmensWert:Mensch – plus

The “plus” section of the unternehmensWert:Mensch program supports small and medium-sized enterprises in personnel policy or work organisation change processes in connection with a digital transformation within the company. Here, too, up to 80% of the consultancy costs are funded.

unternehmensWert:Mensch – Strengthened through the crisis

The focus of the newly launched program is to provide support in coping with the effects of the COVID 19 pandemic. The focus is on building and strengthening organisational resilience against possible further crises. Up to 80% of the consultancy costs incurred are funded.

Pre-foundation and succession coaching Bavaria

The pre-start-up and succession coaching in Bavaria supports start-ups, company successors and new entrepreneurs on their way to self-employment. In turn, this is accompanied by an accredited coach. The consulting costs incurred are subsidised by up to 70%.

Digital Bonus Bavaria

The Digital Bonus is a simple, fast and unbureaucratic subsidy for small and medium-sized enterprises with a place of business in Bavaria. The aim is to promote and advance the digital transformation in Bavaria. On the one hand, entrepreneurs can claim the subsidy for the digitalisation of their own products, processes and services. On the other hand, IT security can be improved at the same time.  The subsidy amounts to up to EUR 50,000 for digitisation measures with particular innovative content.
