Incubation Program

Apply now to join our integrated tech incubator and become our next unicorn!

Our Incubation Program is a 6-12-month structured program that is designed to give startups the professional support they need to make their business model sustainable and ready for investment - all around our six tech verticals. In this phase, the biggest challenge is to show that your product/ idea actually works and that it can be distributed to customers in a scalable and profitable way. This program will help you to build your prototype, get your product to market, and get additional early funding - so that you can become our next unicorn!


The Incubation Program consists of the following core elements:

  • 6 Topic-specific Verticals
  • Access to our Co-working Space
  • Exclusive Workshops and Trainings
  • Mentoring Program
  • Individual Coaching
  • Cross-university Co-Founder Network
