Setup your business and start today!

For most people starting up a new company is a big step which can result in self-fulfilment and major career opportunities, but may also poses risks. The latter, however, may be minimized and taking account of individual conditions. K1 – START-UP SERVICE of the University provides you with extensive advisory services. These range from the your initial idea to the actual start-up. The services also include continuing education courses and other qualification opportunities, networking, premises as well as access to funding options and risk capital. Many students are interested in start-ups originating from the research activities that are usually even more successful than "conventional" new businesses.
