TUM Entrepreneurship

The Technical University of Munich is one of the most successful start-up universities in Europe.

[Translate to English:]

Ideas from researchers and students evolve into companies whose sustainable approaches transform our society and economy. We help founding entrepreneurs take advantage of these opportunities. These entrepreneurs combine economic success with ecological and social responsibility using innovative technologies and business models.

Every single day researchers and students have ideas for technologies that ease the burden on our climate and environment, improve our health and provide assistance to those in need. We help these researchers and students develop these ideas into practical products. The entrepreneurial spirit of founding entrepreneurs thus accelerates the sustainable transformation of our society.
