In order to determine the general conditions for founders, an empirically established, broad and continuously updateable state of knowledge is necessary. The IAB/ZEW Start-up Panel is an instrument that meets these requirements.

Until 2013, it was operated jointly with KfW Bankengruppe and Creditreform (KfW/ZEW Start-up Panel).

Detailed information and studies can be found on IAB/ZEW Start-up Panel.
