Welcome to Entrepreneurs Campus

Welcome to our website. Here you will find information about us, what we are committed to and details about entrepreneurship. You will also find current event information, course dates and how our start-up support works.
Who are we and what do we do? We are a central institution of Ulm University with various transfer projects. We have been in existence since May 2022 and provide services for creative academics who want to develop their idea into a product or a business model. The Entrepreneurs Campus sees itself as a basis for our community to start a subject-specific network. With our courses you can expand your resume with entrepreneurial skills or give your startup a first foundation. In addition, we offer startup support from day 1 - you don't need a ready-made business plan to contact us. We believe that entrepreneurs or solution designers like you and us can achieve more as part of a community than if we are alone.

What drives us and what do we orient ourselves to? In 2015, the United Nations designated 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that encompass the most pressing challenges facing our planet. These social and environmental problems are part of a complex system in which urgent action is needed. With this in mind, we aim to increase the potential for positive change by focusing our activities on specific areas: Technologies and entrepreneurship - biotech and artificial intelligence as well as materials research, nanotechnology, drones, robotics, fusion reactors or quantum computing. The common denominator: the roots are always in science, it's about "impact" instead of influencers, about future technologies on the edge of what's possible. Deep techs need two essentials to develop novel innovations: Time and money. This is because a lot of capital has to be invested in research, especially at the beginning, and it also takes several years for development until these innovations are ready for the market. A "Deep Technology" is rooted in the lower levels of the​​​​​​​ Technology Readiness Levels (TRL). In the beginning, there is scientific research that leads to an invention. In these exploratory early stages, there is often no expectation of a direct return on investment. This means that the research conducted in this phase is not directly focused on "problem solving" and is therefore more likely to be initiated and/or publicly funded by an academic R&D lab.

We tell you the stories behind the people and founding teams. Often a text, picture or short video is not enough. That's why we decided to publish regular podcast episodes to give room for more. You have a topic that should find a place in our podcast? Then write us.
