TUM is the birthplace of new ideas, cutting-edge developments and future technologies which we feed into market-oriented innovation processes through high-potential spin-offs and trust-based industrial partnerships.
We support TUM students, researchers, employees and alumni with a comprehensive range of entrepreneurship services throughout their journey from the initial idea all the way up to the foundation of their own companies. Working in strategic partnerships with global enterprises and market-leading small and medium-size companies, we create innovative solutions fostering the sustainable development of economy and society.
