In the Gründungsgarage (Foundation Garage) all work together: students who bring along precise innovative business ideas  and take the next step in the direction of their realisation are accompanied by mentors with practical experience and work one semester in interdisciplinary teams on the further development of their own business models.

The Gründungsgarage addresses students of all fields of study and universities. In order to be able to support them intensively the number of teams is limited. Each semester a maximum of 10 ideas will be handled in the Gründungsgarage.

What does the Gründungsgarage have to offer to students:
  • 1 semester (2 semester hours / 2 ECTS)
  • 2 universities
  • 10 business ideas
  • 18 mentors from the industry
  • 300 hours of coaching
  • 25,000 € worth of consulting
