Barrier-free business start-ups. Self-employed and successful in working life with disabilities (BESSER)
The Institute for Liberal Professions at the Friedrich-Alexander-University Erlangen-Nuremberg (IFB), the Social Impact gGmbH
, the Hildegardis-Verein e.V.
, the Institute for Empirical Sociology at the Friedrich-Alexander-University Erlangen-Nuremberg (IfeS) and the German Federal Employment Agency - Zentrale Auslands- und Fachvermittlung (ZAV
) are jointly implementing the project "Barrierefrei Existenzgründen. Self-employed and successful in working life with disabilities (BESSER)".
The aim of the project is to improve the employment opportunities of people (especially women) with disabilities on a supra-regional basis by providing needs-oriented advice, support and assistance in matters relating to start-ups and self-employment. To this end, information material for founders is designed to be barrier-free and supplemented by information on services specifically aimed at severely disabled founders. In addition, there will be staff training for start-up advisors, including the development of training material, barrier-free start-up advice for people with disabilities and - if there is a need for it - support for the users of the service after the start-up. In a complementary mentoring program, many of these experiences are deepened, and the participating mentees receive individual support and peer counseling.
A preliminary study and the scientific monitoring of the project serve as quality assurance and make an important contribution to sustainability, effectiveness orientation and evaluation of the project's success.
