The target groups are students, employees and alumni of H-BRS who are interested in founding a company or are those who already have founded start-ups.

The main fields of activity of "Start-up-Manufaktur" are:

  • To raise start-up awareness: Through events and broad network
  •  Start-up qualification: Offering teaching and qualification programs
  •  Start-up coaching:  Providing advice and support in all matters related to founding new businesses including identifying and applying for startup funds.

Additional services such as consulting, match-making and scouting will be offered to those interested in setting up their own business. The offer is supplemented by the provision of suitable premises and the establishment of an H-BRS start-up network.

Coordinated marketing will increase the overall visibility of start-up activities at the university. "Start-up-Manufaktur" aims to enable a start-up-friendly climate and to expand start-up activities within H-BRS significantly.
