TUM Entrepreneurship Advisor

By supporting and promoting entrepreneurial, innovative activities, our employees inspire the spirit of TUM's entrepreneurial university.

[Translate to English:]

As one of the most successful start-up universities in Europe, TUM excels at supporting entrepreneurs launch their ideas onto the market. With the founding of the TUM Venture Labs, technology-based spin-offs now receive additional support. Excellently trained innovation and entrepreneurship managers play an important role to the success of start-up activities at TUM. They promote entrepreneurial activities at the university and support entrepreneurial teams as they translate technological developments and scientific findings into business ideas. 

With the TUM Entrepreneurship Advisor qualification path, we want to enable you to support and promote the entrepreneurial talent of your colleagues and students, whether on the path from an initial idea to a successful company start-up or in the redesign of processes and procedures at TUM. TUM Entrepreneurship Advisors promote the transfer of technology from universities to industry, support entrepreneurial activities in new and existing ventures, further develop the organization TUM and thus ensure the progress of knowledge in Germany.

Structure of the Qualification Programs

All programs have a duration of at least 12 months, although completion of the content can be extended to a maximum of 24 months. Participation in the courses as well as the job shadowing will generally take place during working hours; in particular, the accompanying qualification elements such as career coaching and peer mentoring may require your commitment outside of working hours.

In the qualification programs, we provide you with concrete tools and techniques for effective coaching and support of start-up and innovation projects and work with you to further develop best practices. Our offer addresses the latest research findings while taking current trends into account. Special attention is paid to the practical application of the contents directly during a program.

In this way, we prepare you not only for a job at TUM, but also for a promising continuation of your career, for example, in non-university research institutions, the start-up scene in Munich and beyond, as well as in innovation management in industry.
