For years, the heart of the TUM Entrepreneurship Day has been the ever-popular Start-up Fair. The variety of products, industries and services is great: here you will meet young start-ups as well as old hands in the start-up business. What they all have in common is that their founding roots lie at the Technical University of Munich. 

This year, for the first time digitally, you can inform yourself and network at the booths of up to 100 TUM start-ups throughout the day. Take the opportunity to get to know the services and products of the individual teams better, to find out about job and internship opportunities, or to engage in general conversation with the start-ups. 

In addition, the booths of the service partners offer the possibility to inform yourself about all entrepreneurship offers of TUM and UnternehmerTUM, which are available to you free of charge on your way to your own start-up as a TUM member.
