Business start-up / ZUg - Centre for Business Creation

To maximise the value of research findings and scientific developments, Bielefeld University supports students, graduates and staff wishing to start up their own business.

Persons interested in starting up a business can visit the Zentrum für Unternehmensgründung – ZUg [Centre for business creation] which is part of the Department for Research Administration and Technology (FFT). Here they can get comprehensive advice from the idea to implementation of their business plans as well as further training opportunities.


Starting with an introductory and confidential advice session, potential entrepreneurs are given support right up to the successful launch of their business. Interested persons can also get help in finding and applying for funding as well as joining a start-up network.


ZUg receives academic support from the Chair of Innovation and Technology Management of the Faculty for Business Administration and Economics.
