Our services

Regardless of whether you already have your own start-up idea or not, we welcome you to join us: We introduce you to the topic of start-ups in information events and teach you relevant methods for finding ideas or knowledge that is necessary for the realisation of a business idea in special workshops. Our events are often also open to external participants. In courses, students can expand their expertise in specific areas.

Integration into the university and the start-up ecosystem

At the H-BRS there are various facilities, institutes and people who have a high level of competence in the area of supporting start-ups and those interested in founding in various areas. The Start-up-Manufaktur is in close exchange with these departments in order to refer founders to the right place in a targeted manner.

The CENTIM (Centre for Entrepreneurship, Innovation and SMEs) promotes entrepreneurial thinking and action at Bonn-Rhein-Sieg University of Applied Sciences and is the initiator of the Start-up-Manufaktur. In addition to the research focus on entrepreneurship, the topics of innovation and SME management are also represented. The Competence Centre for Business Succession is also located at CENTIM. 

The Institute for Social Innovation (ISI) is primarily concerned with the area of social entrepreneurship.

The Centre for Science and Technology Transfer (ZWT) takes care of the administrative side of funding applications.
