TUM Entrepreneurship Center
The Entrepreneurship Center offers extensive services to technology-oriented entrepreneurs, from their initial ideas to the growth phase. TUM and its affiliate UnternehmerTUM Institute are housed together on the Garching campus to provide a one-stop-shop for these services.
High-tech workshop (MakerSpace), equipped to build prototypes and carry out small batch production.
Entrepreneurship – Research: Professors from the TUM Entrepreneurship Research Institute (ERI) combine practical experience, research and teaching
Office space and workspace clusters for those interested in founding a business and start-ups in the TUM Incubator
TUM entrepreneurs are given offices and workspaces as well as counselling, all of which are freely available. This allows us to provide support for start-ups in preparation for founding in order to successfully bring their ideas to market.

Cost efficient and signal enhanced sample carrier for the ATR IR spectroscopy
ATR infrared spectroscopy is a widely used technology to analyze samples of various kinds. A key component is the sample carrier. It is made of diamond and is therefore very expensive (approx. 5000 €). We change this using semiconductor technologies. Our product is a low-cost, disposable sample carrier (approx. 5–10€) with a very high signal enhancement. Promising applications are for example high-throughput screenings for protein analysis and bringing blood analysis by infrared spectroscopy into clinic.
- Life Science
With CAALA® architects can calculate and compare in seconds millions of building variants with regards to energy demand, CO2-emissions, investment and operational costs. Our SaaS solution assists architects in optimizing building designs in the early development phases by providing life cycle assessment on design variants considering all relevant design parameters. With CAALA the environmental footprint can be lowered (up to 40% less CO2-emissions) and the value of the building project increased (up to 30% less life-cycle costs).
Focus on future insights derived from past data
We offer the first Cognitive Care Info Center (CCIC) based on sensor data and learning software algorithms. CCIC predicts upcoming events in the surrounding of patients being highly dependent on care. Therefore, CCIC improves patient safety and can help to avoid millions of patient falls followed by serious injuries. CCIC takes the responsibility from operators and staff and will save care facilities and health insurances hundreds of millions of euros.

Hands-free steering solution for electrical wheelchairs based on smart glasses
GLASSCHAIR is a solution for smart glasses, which allows people with disabilities to steer their electrical wheelchair solely via head movement. The innovative, safe and adaptive steering solution allows the user to steer the wheelchair via head movements that are being tracked via a smart glasses. People additionally get access to smart functions and features which are not included in current steering systems. Furthermore it includes several safety features.
inveox automates pathology labs with an automated handling machine for the sample entry, a smart specimen container and a supportive data solution. Thus we prevent cancer misdiagnoses and improve lab efficiency. Our solution prevents error due to mix-ups and wrong labeling and safes the lab up to 160 working hours per week and € 5.000 per week. Our vision is a fully automated, connected pathology lab to enable real time, precise and AI-based cancer diagnosis.

Smart robotics solutions for the scaffolding industry
KEWAZO develops a smart robotics solution for the scaffolding industry. The robotic system “Geruestbot” provides an effective, cost efficient and safe transportation of the scaffolding parts during the scaffolding (dis-)assembly process. We offer the world’s 1st smart onsite scaffolding transportation system, which operates not only in vertical, but also in horizontal directions, optimizing the scaffolding assembly process.
Next Generation Cardiology
Software solutions from LARALAB aid cardiologists by individual analysis, planning and optimization of cardiac interventions. Given the complex and varying anatomy, such interventions are often problematic resulting in risks for the patient and long interventions. LARALAB’s solutions compute the optimal path combined with the determination of the best suitable catheter and implant for each patient. This enables cardiologists to conduct the intervention safer, faster and with a higher success rate.

Preventing Legionella in water supply systems
We are working on a device that can be installed in the warm water supply system of buildings for a hydrodynamic destruction of life-threatening bacteria like Legionella. Costs for enormous heating, chemicals or expensive active carbon filters become no longer necessary. The device enables a more effective and efficient solution and contributes to energy savings by reducing the water temperature.
Oazo is re-inventing beverage consumption and supply. Our water dispenser provides you with healthy and freshly brewed drinks and our ecosystem makes logistics smarter than ever before.
The first self-powered parking sensor
ParkHere stands for the self-powered occupancy control and optimization of urban parking areas. Sensors on the parking lots register a car parking and leaving.
The deformation of ParkHere’s sensors generates electrical voltage, which transmits the occupancy status to a database. From there, e.g. city mapping companies and navigation service providers can obtain the data. Car drivers can navigate directly to the next free parking space.

Improving Quality of Life
Qolware is a start-up based in Munich and provides the first intelligent sensor-based system for smart health monitoring and personal emergency response that helps elderly and individuals with severe chronic disease live autonomously and safely. Qolware’s smartwatch-application unobtrusively records a person’s physiological signals and detects automatic patterns associated with health-related emergencies. This way, dedicated caretakers are automatically informed about any life-threatening situation and provided with an exact location of the person.
