Our goal? We want to offer all ideas and everyone who comes to us a suitable and inspiring environment. To this end, we have not only built up a particularly diverse team, but also base our offer on four different pillars with which we meet the different needs of students, university employees and corporates. The focus is on ensuring thorough start-up advice throughout all phases of the start-up process. We also offer teaching formats and create spaces for interdisciplinary exchange and initial prototype development. These activities are embedded in our strong network, which we are happy to make available to anyone interested in founding a company.
Our diverse event and teaching formats as part of the Studium Generale focus on knowledge and key qualifications for a successful startup. Our focus is on the areas of personality development, entrepreneurship and leadership as well as method training. We work in an interdisciplinary, open-ended and practice-oriented manner. In addition, we organize public events and offer exciting opportunities for learning and networking with our start-up talks, hackathons and workshops.
We help you to examine ideas and concepts in a protected framework and to describe them precisely. This is how you learn to inspire an audience for your idea and to advance your vision. Together we will coordinate the next steps, fine-tune your business plan and provide information on formats to support your project. University-related funding opportunities are the focus of the advisory work, such as the EXIST start-up scholarship for innovative start-ups from the university.
Whether alone or in a team, whether spatially or financially: we create (free) spaces in which you can develop ideas and first prototypes and deal intensively with your projects. To this end, we will open the new HHN makerspace on the Sontheim campus in autumn 2020, where you can work independently on high-quality machines in order to create your models on a 3D printer or CNC milling machine. In addition, we are currently planning the new creative room on the education campus to create another place for a firework of creativity.
Internally and externally, we maintain a network that provides necessary and still missing knowledge and resources. We help you, for example, with team matching to expand competencies and thereby come one step closer to realizing your vision. We are also happy to provide our contacts when looking for potential partners, allies and investors. Because we are convinced that we can get further together and want to contribute to creating an open and strong ecosystem in Heilbronn in which innovations and startups can flourish.
