In the area of founding support, teams with a start-up idea are supervised from the early discovery phase to the foundation and first external investment. Relevant subjects are offered to the teams through individual coaching and structured programs.

For infrastructure, a start-up hub with office and lab space was established at the university hospital "Klinikum rechts der Isar" as a focal and contact point for entrepreneurial thinking. The teams in our ecosystem can use this space for their activities. If you would like to stay up to date, you can sign up for our bi-monthly newsletter here.
