EXIST and applying for grants

How you finance your Business Idea

Financing your own business idea is one of the greatest hurdles when it comes to business start-ups. Along with incubators, business angels and venture-capital funds, there are also state grant programmes for financing business start-up projects. Examples of these are EXIST, Climate KIC and the FLÜGGE grant programme for business starters from universities and polytechnics. The team at our start-up consultancy will help in selecting the right aid and will support you in applying for it.

We offer you:
  • Evaluation and support in developing your business idea
  • Provision of precise consultancy and qualification modules of the Technische Universität München and UnternehmerTUM
  • Support when making applications (business plan) in grant programmes
  • Support in general questions of financing
  • Provision of experts and mentors
