Founding at the University Journey from the idea to autonomy

The Startup service is the first focal point and the contact partner for all aspects of knowledge- and technology-based spin-offs and successful start-ups. We support those willing to set up a company from three groups: students, academic staff, and alumni (up to seven years after graduation). Our free service includes intensive and personal support and advice, tailor-made qualifications, and assistance when applying for financial aid (eg. EXIST Start-up grant). Furthermore, we educate on corporate succession as a possible career path.

The Startup service is sponsored by the Ministry of Labor, Social Affairs, Health, Women and Family, and the Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy with funds from the European Social Fund and the State of Brandenburg.
