In addition to the charitable LLC (gGmbH) and the charitable stock corporation (gAG), which are suitable for larger projects in Germany, the charitable entrepreneurial company (gemeinnützige Unternehmergesellschaft, gUG) has become increasingly important in recent years. It is particularly suitable for small enterprises and can be set up with a share capital of just EUR 1. The charitable entrepreneurial company is therefore often referred to as a "Mini-gGmbH" or "1-Euro-gGmbH". This means that the charitable UG does not have to raise the LLC's usual share capital of EUR 25,000 immediately. Instead, the charitable UG can accumulate the amount over the years.
However, actual 1 euro start-ups are rarely sustainable in practice. A certain minimum initial capital is necessary to prevent the charitable UG from falling into a state of insolvency immediately after its establishment.
