Can I Speed up the startup in any way? GIMP won't be able to check anything
outside of our company LAN.
GIMP is not going online looking for new versions of plug-ins, it is
scanning the file system(s) for previously unknown plug-ins, in user
and system paths. One reason this might be slow is if GIMP is
installed on a slow network file system.

AFAIK is doesn't even scan whole filesystems, it just checks the
directories listed in Edit>Preferences>Folders>Plugins (two by default),
and perhaps their child directories.

However, to answer the OPs problem, I once had an executable
unexpectedly copied to one of these directories ("wget", for that
matter) that Gimp would then try to run on each startup and which took
time to exit, delaying the startup by that much.
