Business start-ups from the university

Business start-ups from the university

Course content, research results, visions and everyday problems can be the basis for a successful start-up. The start-up service starting business at Leibniz University Hannover supports and assists the realisation of innovative ideas into efficient business concepts.

starting Business is the central office for students and research assistants at Leibniz University Hannover interested in setting up a business. Anyone wishing to start a business, develop their own ideas or join an existing founding team will receive free, professional support. We provide cross-departmental support:

  • Students
  • University staff
  • Researchers and academics
  • Alumni

The start-up service supports the realisation of business ideas throughout the entire start-up process - from concept development to market launch. In addition to providing sound advice, we ensure that the projects are integrated into the regional ecosystem for founders.

Our aim is to raise awareness among members of Leibniz University Hannover of the possibility of self-employment as an alternative to dependent employment, to mobilise start-up ideas, to implement qualification measures, as well as to advise and support company founders with their projects.
