The transfer and founding service applies in the third quarter of 2023 in the program EXIST-Woman of the Federal Ministry of Economics and Climate Protection (BMWK). As part of the funding, it is planned to set up a coaching and mentoring program to promote ideas and talents of women with a focus on entrepreneurial mind set. The goal is to increase the proportion of women among the founding students, graduates, doctoral students and young researchers.

Part of the funding is a 3-month scholarship for students, graduates, doctoral students and young researchers who want to find out if business start-up is an option for them and who want to develop a business idea.

We are currently building, in addition to our qualification offers for start-up interested people, researchers and startups, offers for women interested in starting a business.
