Ilmkubator - Start-up Service at the TU Ilmenau

The Ilmkubator is the start-up service of TU Ilmenau. In cooperation with our partners, we provide support in all phases of self-employment - regardless of whether there is only an idea, a concrete start-up project or the founding process is already in progress. In addition to classic start-up consulting, our service portfolio also includes intensive coaching, qualification and teaching offers, networking events, contact mediation and access to and advice on funding opportunities.

A highlight of our offer is the Ilmkubator Class, the intensive support program for particularly promising start-up ideas. Teams and individual founders can develop their concepts in six modules with the support of our Ilmkubator coaches, mentors and experts. All information about the program is available here. The Ilmkubator Class starts with the beginning of summer term each year.

All information on current start-up projects, events and insights into the work of the Ilmkubator can also be found on LinkedIn, Facebook or Instagram.
