Starting something new, daring to innovate

More than 220 spin-offs have been registered at TU Ilmenau since 1990. Of these, more than 100 technology-oriented companies have settled in the immediate vicinity of the university. This has led to the creation of several new business parks around the university.

The innovative spin-off activities are thematically influenced by the teaching and research portfolio of the TU Ilmenau and have produced, among others, world market leaders. The active networking of business and science contributes significantly to a founder-friendly region. The location Ilmenau, with its support structures and location factors, its proximity to the university and other transfer institutions, offers excellent conditions for start-ups.
