In collaboration with Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (F.A.Z.), "Stiftung der deutschen Wirtschaft für Arbeit und Beschäftigung" (SWAB GmbH) will start the DU2011 Jobs and Founder Initiative (www.du2011.de) in October 2010.
The initiative's objective is the long-term and sustained promotion of founders by providing capital and the assistance of professionals. In the scope of the nationwide initiative, founders may not only obtain capital, but may also be provided with the expertise of mentors to implement their business ideas.

In addition to Prof. Dr. Georg Streit, Partner of the law firm in Munich, experts from DAX 30 corporations, technology companies and venture capitalists participate in the selection of the submitted business cases.
