Welcome to Entrepreneurs Campus

A very warm welcome to our website. Here you will find information about us, what we are committed to and details about entrepreneurship. You will also find information on current events, course dates and how our start-up support works.

Who we are and what we do? We are a central institution of Ulm University with various transfer projects. We have been in existence since May 2022 and create offers for creative academics who want to develop their idea into a product or business model. The Entrepreneurs Campus sees itself as the basis from which our community can launch a specialist network. With our courses, you can expand your CV with entrepreneurial skills or give your startup an initial foundation. In addition, we offer start-up support from day 1 - you don't need a finished business plan to contact us. We are convinced that entrepreneurs or solution designers like you and us can achieve more as part of a community than if we were alone.

What is our service? Our work is based on 2 pillars - entrepreneurship education and start-up support. We regularly organize events, courses and workshops on these two topics. We provide information about dates via our channels and the Ulm University event calendar. You can apply for a scholarship for your startup via our central institution. We mainly work through the federal state program (Junge Innovatoren) or the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Protection (exist: Existenzgründungen aus der Wissenschaft). You can find out about the information events taking place or about courses via the Ulm University registration tool.

What drives us and what we are guided by? In 2015, the United Nations named 17 sustainability goals that address the most urgent challenges facing our planet. These social and environmental problems are part of a complex system in which there is an urgent need for action. With this in mind, we want 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 always lie in science, it's about "impact" instead of influencers, about future technologies on the edge of feasibility. Deep Techs need two essential points for the development of new innovations: Time and money. A lot of capital has to be invested in research, especially at the beginning, and it also takes several years of development before these innovations are ready for the market. A "deep technology" is rooted in the lower levels of the​​​​​​​ Technology Readiness Levels (TRL). It all starts with 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 aimed at "solving the problem" and is therefore more likely to be initiated by an academic R&D lab and/or publicly funded.
