The Leibniz Transfer Department encourages and supports start-up endeavours originating at Leibniz institutions. It is a contact point for researchers during every phase of the start-up process. Leibniz Transfer helps research vital information and connects, advises and mentors the new entrepreneurs.
Its services are free of charge and range from assessing the business idea through helping elaborate the business plan to finding suitable funding. This includes government support programmes, such as the EXIST start-up scholarship or EXIST research transfer. The decision to start a new business rests on the solid foundation of a business plan, the central implementation tool of the start-up. Should the start-up strategy prove to be impractical, Leibniz Transfer will explore alternative ways of exploiting the idea.
Leibniz Transfer helps prepare as well as implement the start-up and remains in an advisory role until its market launch. The job of Leibniz Transfer is over when the business is established on the market and reaps its first successes.
