Once it is clear that the paths of the university and the employees interested in founding a company may part on good terms, further development is required.

Together with the potential founders, we work on the business idea.

More specifically on the actual spin-off as well as on the transformation of researchers into entrepreneurs with a scientific background. In doing so, we create an awareness of all the things that still need to be considered, developed and achieved on the way to a spin-off.

Doing the groundwork

In parallel, we mediate between the university and the emerging spin-off in order to smooth the transition from the world of science to the free market.

For example, by making laboratory and office infrastructure available to the founders for a limited period of time after they leave the university - within the bounds of what is permissible under competition and funding laws.

Another part of the development work is the targeted networking of researchers, employees, students and institutes.
