Bernd Behrens helps promote SMEs in Schleswig-Holstein
4Care Managing Director Bernd Behrens wants SMEs in his part of the country in Northern Germany to benefit from his success. Taking part in a press conference held by government economic development agencies in Kiel on 12 February, the owner of 4Care GmbH shared the successful experiences of his company with the Investment Bank of Schleswig-Holstein (IB.SH), the SME investment company MBG Schleswig-Holstein, and the SME Fund of Schleswig-Holstein, or MSH. These development agencies promote the creditworthiness of SMEs through an investment fund financed by the European Regional Development Fund and capital market funds. Bernd Behrens and Marco Siegmund, the owners and managing directors of 4Care GmbH, took over the company three years ago (2012) in a management buyout, and have stated that they were extremely happy with the support and technical advice from the aforementioned development agencies. Bernd Behrens can now look back on a very successful business experience and would like to encourage other entrepreneurs to seize the opportunities offered by working with these development agencies.
