What distinguishes Ilmenau as an innovation location, how can founders be supported even better and what should Ilmenau's start-up scene look like in a few years? Entrepreneurs and guests from the local start-up scene will discuss these questions in two entertaining panel discussions. In addition, there will also be interactive start-up presentations in which technology-oriented start-ups from the vicinity of TU Ilmenau that have been founded in the last year will introduce themselves. Reports are given on the founding process, products and services are presented and contacts are made. Viewers can talk to the founders and ask questions.

The Gründertalk is aimed at entrepreneurs and start-up actors from Thuringia and expressly invites all those interested in founding and curious about the university and the city to take part. Discussions that arise during the Founders' Talk can then be deepened at the Ilmkubator.connects Founders' Roundtable. The events take place hybrid and are transmitted via the video conferencing tool Cisco Webex(access code: 121 026 5770, password: GEp324m2TKk).
