About us

Vision and mission

We want to promote the start-up system at both universities in cooperation with regional and national partners. Our services are available at any time for students, employees, alumni and regional founders.

Focus areas

  • Teaching
    We support our lecturers with guest lectures and the possibility to use our pitch stage in their studies. We also help students to implement the ideas they have developed in their teaching or classes in the form of innovative start-ups.

  • Continuing education
    We regularly organise events and workshops to give students an understanding of entrepreneurship and self-employment.

  • Research
    We publish practice-oriented research on the topics of entrepreneurship and business succession.

  • Projects
    Students, employees and alumni are supported and guided by us from developing innovative ideas, creating a business plan to implement their start-up. Due to the financing by the Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy through the EXIST support programme, our services are currently completely free of charge for participants.

  • Co-Working Space
    All rooms of our Co-Working Space are provided free of charge for students, staff and alumni and gives founders the chance to work actively on developing their start-up.

  • Network
    Constant exchange with the regional and national innovation ecosystem is essential to us. Furthermore, we attach great importance to cooperation with regional companies and start-ups that EBS and HGU Alumni have successfully founded.
