KIT Founders Forge

In April 2013, the KIT-Gründerschmiede (KIT Founders Forge) was launched, an initiative that offers students and KIT employees the opportunity to deal specifically with the topics of starting a business and entrepreneurship.

Within the framework of the KIT-Gründerschmiede, new teaching and training formats as well as improved consulting services have been established. Support is being offered for both student start-ups as well as high-tech spin-offs from the scientific field.

In addition, the KIT-Gründerschmiede acts as an access point to the Karlsruhe start-up ecosystem. Through co-operations and network events, a lively exchange with the regional start-up scene takes place.
