Business Start-up Projects at the University of Wuppertal

The University of Wuppertal has already won numerous awards for its exemplary commitment to supporting entrepreneurs from the university in their start-up endeavours throughout Germany.

Advice, qualification and support are the most important building blocks with which the University of Wuppertal Business Incubator helps them to get their new businesses off the ground.

Fancy going it alone with your business concept? The Business Incubator will answer all your basic questions and will help you to solve potential problems in advance. From the initial consultancy session (a general small-group clinic for which you will need to register) to the production of an action plan to preparing a written outline of your ideas, we will provide you with professional and expert advice. 

In addition, we offer a comprehensive range of qualification courses comprising formal courses, public seminars and focused seminars, which will help you with the long-term planning and implementation of your business concept. 

What’s more, there are many ways to secure the requisite funding for your business start-up, including, for example, competitions and funding programmes. Check out the following pages to discover what is available and what the various programmes could do for you:
