From business start-up consulting to advice about funding opportunities and speeding up approval procedures to technology transfer – the Office of Economic Development is there to help you. We support you in implementing your business goals in the District of Vechta. For example, small and medium-sized enterprises, in particular, often lack the resources to attract and secure the skilled personnel they need with flexible and customised strategies. This is where the government professionals from the District of Vechta come in with numerous small- and large-scale initiatives to help meet your demand for qualified specialists with career guidance schemes for young people, further training and qualification programmes for employees, and targeted funding measures.
The district government funds start-up entrepreneurs and company succession with a total of EUR 400,000 per year through its own investment grant programme and gives you extensive advice for your plans and projects in collaboration with the chambers of industry and commerce.
The Transfer Centre Oldenburger Münsterland (TZOM) provides consultation on knowledge and technology transfer on behalf of the District of Vechta. This is offered in close cooperation with the Steinbeis Foundation, a nationally recognised expert network for technology issues and innovation processes. Consultations focus on the potential for improvement in your company: market and sales strategies, process and procedure optimisation, product design, etc.

The Office of Economic Development for the District of Vechta acts as a partner and service provider for companies, local authorities, institutions and associations. You'll find all the details here: Feel free to contact us.
