The start-up consultancy is open to all members of the TUM. You can get advice if you are a student, scientist, employee or alumni (max. 5 years) of TUM. Unfortunately, external persons cannot use the consulting services.
"The TUM start-up consultancy not only played a decisive role in our successful application for the EXIST start-up grant, which enabled us to test our ideas on the market and adapt them to product-market fit. We were also supported in the subsequent months during our market entry and a successful financing round, and we always have a reliable contact person."
"We couldn't have done it without start-up consultancy. It's exactly what your idea/business needs to take off in the beginning."
"The start-up consultancy and the associated support services have helped us a lot on the way to our own start-up. Not only was the valuable exchange of experiences with the TUM start-up network a great help, but the hands-on help with both the EXIST application and other funding were great. The enormously high success rate of TUM teams in EXIST applications is only possible because of the experience and unparalleled help of the startup advisors."
"The TUM start-up consultancy and the support from the Entrepreneurship Research Institute were a great help in the early days of our company - not only, but especially in overcoming the challenges and bureaucracy related to public funding."
