Entrepreneurship Promotion

From idea to acceleration: Developing your entrepreneurship promotion concept

We offer entrepreneurs and academic institutions worldwide, a transfer of our entrepreneurship promotion concept in cooperation with the Self Management Initiative Leipzig (SMILE), a well-known regional project that supports entrepreneurship and start-ups in Leipzig. SMILE has a vast experience in the supervision and coaching of start-ups and spin-off companies as well as in the training of soft skills and management competencies.

Every semester around 1.000 participants take part in the program, and as a direct result, almost 560 businesses have been founded.

We guide our partners in setting-up the right concepts and tools  for supporting idea generation, and moving forward to the corresponding prototyping and business model development, together with its corresponding review, incubation, and business creation, before leading to the best part: acceleration.

In 2014 we started the African German Entrepreneurship Academy together with several partner universities in Africa. As a result more than 20 entrepreneurship initiatives at Higher Education Institutions were created.
