EXIST-Project "Gründungskultur@TUC"

From 2020 to 2024, TU Clausthal will receive funding for its project "Gründungskultur@TUC" from the "EXIST-Potentiale" programme of the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action. The aim of the project is to sustainably stimulate startup activity at the university and to systematically leverage previously untapped startup potential.

With this project, TU Clausthal is pursuing a holistic strategic approach. The teaching of entrepreneurial  skills already during studies is intended to raise awareness across the board and lay the foundation for the development of an "entrepreneurial spirit". This entrepreneurial spirit forms the breeding ground for the creative development of innovative ideas and business models, which in turn can be used to develop successful startups with professional support.

The TUC Startup Service is funded by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action as part of the EXIST-Potentials program.
