What are successful strategies for obtaining Germany residency through an investment?

I heard Germany does not have a set investment amount like other countries to obtain a Golden Visa. Do you know what investment amount a successful applicant should have? How many jobs do I need to create, and do they need to be for Germans or EU citizens?

    There are no specific requirements for the investment amount and number of created jobs in the regulation for this visa for self-employment. The visa is normally obtained through self-employment, meaning establishing and running a business/company in Germany. The legal types of the companies could be various, the most common one for small- to medium-size enterprises is GmbH, which requires a minimum of registered capital of 25,000 euros.
