At UnternehmerTUM, vision turns into real value. We present pioneering individuals and teams who are creating the future with their start-ups. We let you dive into the world of start-ups, present exciting stories and interviews with founders who have dared to take the step towards their own company.

Read the exciting success stories of start-ups like Ciara, KINEXON, inveox, ProGlove and many more. Get proven tips from experts in our "How to..." articles and educate yourself here.

Our programs support you on the way to a successful start-up: For example, our entrepreneurship program Manage and More was one of the first stops for start-ups such as KONUX, ProGlove or inveox. In some cases, their team members were found here or initial business ideas were developed together with established companies. With our leading tech-start-up accelerator in Europe, TechFounders, the big leap onto the market was often already achieved - for ProGlove, for example, with the partner company Festo.

You can also find out what will help you in your entrepreneurial activities and read the latest facts and forecasts from the world of business.

Definition of entrepreneurship: The term entrepreneurship covers the entire process of setting up a business. It has also established itself as an economic discipline and research subject. Entrepreneurship unites all topics and interfaces of the start-up culture and the entire ecosystem. Included are market developments, business ideas, business plans, soft skills, personality development as well as methods, tools and instruments for implementation.
