«INBETS BSR is a very timely project for our region and our country. The global passion for start-UPS and serial entrepreneurship is taking the attention away from the old working business, which now faces the urgent question of transferring it to the next generation. After all, this business ensures the sustainable development of small territories, allows you to save jobs and improve the quality of life of local communities.

Thanks to the participation of the project, we can get acquainted with the experience of partners from other countries where these issues became relevant much earlier and get acquainted with their experience. The main task of our organization in the project is to broadcast this experience in our region to inform and advise entrepreneurs of the Kaliningrad region about existing solutions.

Legal, financial, and cultural aspects of business transfer and comprehensive support for entrepreneurs are also important. And we are glad that we can provide this support by participating in the project.»

Success Story One of the most striking examples of a successful family business in the Kaliningrad region is the company “DEP- Bugalteria “. Its owners are proud of the business model that they have managed to build over a twenty-year period of work in the accounting and consulting services market. In 2015, Dmitry Kurelyak, the company’s founder, understood that fundamentally new approaches to doing business are needed. More automation, online work, clearly defined business processes and new approaches to the organization of staff work. A new stage in the development of the family business was beginning. While working in this direction, all participants gradually understood that an effective and correct solution would be to transfer the leadership to their son Pavel Kurelyak. Pavel was ready to take on the implementation of further development plans, while Dmitry supports their implementation with his knowledge and experience. The main goal of the business transfer was to maintain the trust of customers and the professional team during the change of management. This was largely due to a long transfer period, with numerous consultations with employees and meetings with key clients.
