Global DeepTech Venture Initiative

We bring Tech Entrepreneurs to Munich.

The TUM Global DeepTech Venture Initiative (GDTV) aims to support international high-tech founders on their way to establish a successful start-up within the Munich ecosystem. Start-ups from all over the world are given the unique opportunity to settle in the German high-tech metropolis with the help of a experienced expert network. The mixture of scientific innovation, high talent density and fast-growing industry in the heart of Europe, makes Munich one of the most attractive locations to scale start-ups and transform them into successful and sustainable businesses.

The GDTV Initiative supports Start-ups from the following deep tech focus areas:
