The International Startup Campus supports the internationalization of startups.

International Startup Campus

We offer anchoring in the regional startup and innovation ecosystem of Central Germany and raise awareness of the opportunities and risks of international markets already at an early stage. Our focus is on East Asia, but we also connect your startup to other world regions and markets.

We make the international networks of our universities available and expand them to benefit your startup.

Become part of the community and network with like-minded people, startups, entrepreneurs and investors.

In doing so, we base our project of three universities on a three-step approach, three fields of action, three international hubs.

Attract (Join)

We offer internationally oriented founding teams and startups to use our networks, become part of the community and settle in Central Germany.

Academy (Learn)

Our qualification offer is aimed at early-stage startup teams that have the potential to successfully expand internationally. Later internationalization can already be taken into account in various start-up aspects: product and business model development, patent strategy and financing.

Accelerate (Explore)

The decision for a lucrative market with low market entry barriers is important for the later growth path of a startup. Therefore, together with various cooperation partners, we also support the decision-making process for international market development in the early stages.
