Startup Center of Johannes Gutenberg University

The Startup Center of Johannes Gutenberg University offers help with individual questions and provides networking with external partners.
We consult from developing a business model to finding and applying for funding opportunities for entrepreneurs (e.g. EXIST).
Our offer addresses all members of JGU (Students, Scientists, Alumni) that pursue a science- or technology-based business startup.

Please send us the filled out Questionnaire (German) about your plans before your initial consultation.
