"This study summarizes available evidence on the New Start-Up Subsidy (NSUS, “Gründungszuschuss”) for the unemployed in Germany. Subsidized founders show high survival rates in self-employment and some additional job creation. Causal analyses reveal large positive impacts on founders’ labor market outcomes as well as job satisfaction but negative effects on social security. These findings suggest increasing the number of subsidized start-ups through the NSUS and strengthening ties of its founders with the social security system." (Author's abstract, IAB-Doku) ((en))
