Start-up Mentoring

A quicker start with a mentor behind you

How do I get my first customer? How do I manage initial customer meetings? These are typical questions which a start-up team ask themselves in the difficult initial stage. If a young business is to be successful, continual support is necessary. This is where start-up mentoring comes in, offering growth-oriented start-up teams from the TUM an opportunity free of charge to be supervised by an expert en route to their market entry.

How you will benefit:
  • Mentors' experience of entrepreneurship
  • Know-how in dealing with the challenges of the starting stage
  • Further development of expertise in strategic business planning
  • Expanding the network
  • Building up long-term partnerships
