Funding opportunities through Junge Innovatoren (“Young Innovators”)

Program details

The funding program Junge Innovatoren (“Young Innovators”) helps young scientific staff from universities and non-university research institutions to set up their own businesses to manufacture and sell innovative products or processes. Only start-ups involving products and processes based on their inventions, software developed by them or their technological know-how are eligible for funding.

The aim of the program is to create an alternative to paid employment and, at the same time, to promote the transfer of technology and know-how from universities to industry. In particular, funding will focus on promising fields such as optoelectronics, biotechnology, medical technology, solar technology, automation technology and mechatronics.


Please note: Before submitting an application, an initial interview with the Founders Forge start-up coaches must take place.
