TUM and UnternehmerTUM support spin-offs in the Entrepreneurship Center in Garching with a service spectrum unique in Europe, covering the initial idea all the way to the IPO. Here start-up teams find an extensive range of subsidies, personal exchange with entrepreneurship researchers and also have access to a very strong network of technology and industry experts and investors. Office space and Europe’s largest publically accessible high-tech prototype workshop – the UnternehmerTUM MakerSpace – round off the complete range available to founders.
According to the “start-up radar” of the German business community’s innovation agency Stifterverband for German Science, no other major German university promotes the founding of spin-offs better than TUM. The university produces approximately 70 companies every year.
