The Start-up Service Ilmkubator creates space for female founders* and women interested in founding to meet and exchange ideas - at the Female Founders Lounge in the Humboldt Building of TU Ilmenau on Wednesday, March 8, starting at 6 p.m.!

We will also present exclusive tips and inspiration from Thuringian female founders and show exciting facts and figures about the female start-up scene in Germany. Our female employees will be available for consultations between 6:00 and 7:30 pm.

We are proud to be supported by the University Library, which will display selected literature for International Women's Day, and ThEx FRAUENSACHE.

We look forward to seeing you!


*We are addressing all individuals who identify as female with this offer. For the sake of simplicity, the term "women" is used here.


Our scientists develop the most precise scales in the world - innovative electronic components inspired by human nerve cells - designer molecules that fight cancer... 100 professors work across disciplines to find solutions to the major challenges facing society: growing mobility, sustainable use of resources, demographic change. To this end, we bundle our expertise in three profile lines and actively promote the transfer of knowledge and technology to society.

There are many reasons to study at the Technische Universität Ilmenau: the practical training at the highest level - top rankings - excellent supervision - state-of-the-art equipment - best career prospects - and exciting future topics such as autonomous mobility, bio-inspired technology, networked communication or sustainable economic models, which characterize the traditionally strongly engineering-oriented range of study programs.


Established in 1894, the Thüringisches Technikum, the forerunner of the TU Ilmenau, already trained highly qualified engineers, and with the founding of the University of Electrical Engineering in 1953, the academic training of graduate engineers began. Today, five modern departments conduct interdisciplinary research and teaching in engineering, mathematics and natural sciences as well as economic sciences and media.
