As one of the large centres, we work across national borders and offer you tailored facilities and laboratory space at three different sites.
This is the place for great companies and even greater people. See for yourself. Perhaps your next cooperation partner is already here? As a start, some describe what drives them and how they are progressing or how they have already become successful.
Exchanging ideas and mutual support benefits everyone.
Our region may not be Berlin for start-up purposes, but Ulm and its surrounding area also have a great start-up community, supported by really cool people. And we're right in the middle of it, helping you to access it. Be it access to committed like-minded people, potential business partners, to Start-up BBQs or to new, exciting projects such as “weinhof9”, the experimental field for the world of tomorrow. A business initiative will help you, as well as local associations and clubs. Use our connections and help to build up and expand the local start-up community. You are very welcome!
A medical technology start-up
My project covers sensor technology and medical therapy. The question is: How does one link these two fields?
As a physiotherapist, you are confronted with problems during therapy that cannot be solved by humans alone. This is why technology must be used in conjunction with therapy and therefore serve to train the user.
Since 2015, I have been working on the idea of using an App to connect people who have met in everyday life. And since 2016, this is why I have been renting a start-up office at the TFU, which enables me to realise my project and supports me with in-house advice and synergies.
