Supporting young entrepreneurs since 2005

Humboldtians interested in establishing their own company – regardless of whether they are students or researchers – can count on the Venture Service’s support, both with information and practical assistance, on their way to becoming entrepreneurs. Central to the Venture Service’s work are the startup incubators (venture zones) in Adlershof and Mitte, which provide office space to HU’s entrepreneurs: connecting with other entrepreneurs and developing innovative ideas are a lot easier in these creative environments.

Additionally, the Venture Service team supports startup projects with identifying and applying for financing opportunities such as the EXIST “Business Start-up Grant” and “Transfer of Research” programmes.

After a startup’s creation, Humboldt-Innovation supports the founders in a variety of ways, for example with training opportunities, alumni work as well as service packages that assist the young entrepreneurs in their daily work.
