The Chair of Technology Management actively and passively supports entrepreneurs at the FAU, especially technology oriented spin-off companies. There are specific funding programs, like e.g. FLÜGGE (in German only), EXIST Business Start-up Grant und EXIST Transfer of Research. You can find further information at FAU Gründerbüro (FAU founder office, in German only).

The “Startup-Lotse” also offers information about events, contact persons etc. for startups (in German only).

The FAU Sandbox supports start-up teams to finance the first steps of founding their own company.

The Grino Water Solutions GmbH is an extraordinary example for a young company that started in 2017 from a research project at the Chair of Technology Management. Their idea is a battery-free solar based water desalination. Today, Grino is ranked in top 10 startups of North Bavaria.
