How start-ups struggle with authorities

Germany’s lag in the field of digitization is not only a problem for citizens, but for the entire German economy. Companies also face major challenges when it comes to applications, permits and licenses. But the difficulties start much earlier in the life cycle of a company – namely when it is founded. For start-ups, the bureaucracy can quickly decide whether a project is successful or not.

Handelsblatt reporter Teresa Stiens knows how big the problems really are. She talks about what the German madness in bureaucracy means for the world of founders – and what solutions young entrepreneurs in particular want so that the German economy remains internationally competitive.
