Institute for Entrepreneurship & InnovationRSS

The driving force behind company formation and the innovation process is the entrepreneurial act.  Emerging companies can implement very efficiently but also established companies are challenged to rediscover themselves through innovation.

The goal of our teaching programs is to present the students with first-class knowledge in the areas entrepreneurship and innovation. In our research we work on open problems of the entrepreneurship and innovation areas.

Both in research and teaching, we orientate ourselves towards leading international universities and business schools and work closely with international business as well as research partners.
