Our vision

The vision of TUM Venture Labs is to leverage our unique research power and increase the quality and quantity of scalable technology spin-offs and ventures in the region by a factor of ten. To reach this ambitious goal we bundle and expand the existing activities and expertise in start-up support by TU Munich and UnternehmerTUM with complementary offerings. 


What makes the TUM Venture Labs unique?

Focus on technological mega trends

The TUM Venture Labs address the needs of researchers, students and founders from high-tech opportunity fields such as biotech, AI, quantum and aerospace. The comprehensive offerings - such as courses, programs and, in particular, personal support are focused and adapted to the respective domains and thus reflect the specific "start-up reality".

Spaces and infrastructure directly on site

Each individual TUM Venture Lab is located directly at its associated school and faculty and is thus close to the relevant research laboratories. Workstations, labs, workshops/MakerSpace and other infrastructure relevant to your technology domain are available right where you work or study.

Cross-Lab methodological competence

The inclusive strategy of the TUM Venture Labs allows interdisciplinary start-up projects to access the offerings of several Labs and fosters the connection of TUM Venture Labs among each other to promote the development of cross-cutting technology and startup projects. The TUM Venture Labs bundle the broad spectrum of TUM and UnternehmerTUM know-how.

Integration into the research and start-up ecosystem

Benefit from the close collaboration between academia and the start-up ecosystem at TUM. Each Venture Lab offers access to dedicated scientific staff and professors as mentors, coaches but also start-up, industry and market experts. Interact with our network that extends across Munich, Bavaria, Germany and beyond.
