Startup Coaching at our Institute
Whether it's an invention, a start-up idea or an interest in founding, our team of experienced coaches with different professional backgrounds will support you in all areas related to the topic of founding - from idea development and potential analysis to conception and business plan to funding programmes and successful follow-up financing.
Our start-up advisors support spin-offs with a technological background from the scientific institutes as well as students and graduates with their ideas in all start-up phases. Our accompanying advisory services include initial advice, further development of business models, applications for funding, further training and networking. Together with the Research and Transfer Department, we also provide advice on the use of patents and licences.
We offer start-up advice for all those interested in setting up a business and for those who are still unsure. Simply make an appointment for an initial discussion with one of our coaches and write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Our counselling is free of charge and of course strictly confidential.

"Founding without founding"
The Transfer and Start-up Company (TGU) offers all members of the university the opportunity to take the first steps towards founding their own company.
A TGU as a department of the TTI GmbH is the outstanding unique selling point with which those willing to start a business can immediately become entrepreneurial. The TTI GmbH is both the protection and marketing instrument.
Those interested in setting up a business - preferably from the University of Stuttgart - have the opportunity to prepare for an independent existence within the framework of a transfer and start-up company (TGU) as project managers within TTI GmbH. TTI GmbH takes over the financial and personnel management and much more as a service.
