KIT Gründerschmiede

Consulting for scientific employees

We provide assistance you from an initial idea to a successful founding – our team of experienced consultants has supported many young entrepreneurs in the past.

Startup consulting at the Innovation and Relations Management

Startups based out of science need special consulting services: In addition to the challenges that need to be mastered by all founders, spin-offs from research institutions face questions about property rights, licenses, and managing complex product developments.

Our startup consultants at the Innovation and Relations Management specialise in intensive monitoring of high-tech startups.

Consulting and funding applications

People interested in founding a business can directly contact the Innovation and Relations Management for individual consulting. In personal conversations, our consultants work on the underlying technology and the project topic, define the next important steps together with the founders, and assist in the selection and application for public funding or other startup funding.

Expert network and interim management

The direct connection of startup consultants with experts for patents and trademarks, market and technology analyses, contract negotiations, and many other topics facilitates the initial steps for new entrepreneurs.

It often makes sense to provide additional management support for startup projects in science. The startup consultants of the Innovation and Relations Management mediate appropriate management skills if required or engage themselves for a limited time as an interim manager in the project.
