Starting a business is not only an attractive career option, but can also open up a real opportunity to change things for the better. However, the path to self-employment requires many individual steps and therefore a lot of staying power. Those interested in founding a company at the THM are not alone on this path, but experience a wide range of support from their university - from the initial idea to the early start-up phase.

Graphic representation of the founding process


Having a business idea is the most important prerequisite for founding a company. But that alone is not enough, because founding a company means not only having to deal with your own idea, but also with many other questions that mostly lie outside your own horizon of experience and knowledge.

The Transfer department accompanies those interested in starting a business right from the start, provides information, advice and support, shows ways and options and brings those looking to set up a business together with the right partners via the start-up network.

Knowledge transfer is an important component of the support services. With this in mind, the THM organizes, among other things, with its network partners " StartMiUp" and "THINK" In addition to the curricular offers for students, a large number of information and workshop events.
