We are sure that exciting business ideas can arise from science. But even if you are active in other areas at the university – we look forward to supporting you in building your start-up!

We offer a free start-up consulting service to support you on your journey. Our start-up scouts Alida and Christoph can help you with your marketing strategy, financing or business model.
