UnternehmerTUM's lectures and seminars are incredibly popular among tech and innovation driven students at TUM. Our partners get to co-design the curriculum and hold lectures in front of hundreds of students.

Frederik Zohm, Executive Board Member for Research and Development at MAN Truck & Bus SE comments on MAN's experience as lead sponsor of the lecture series Innovative Entrepreneurs:

We are excited to meet Technical University of Munich's smart and driven students and to exchange ideas on innovation in technology as well as MAN's mission to drive a sustainable mobility future.

Entrepreneurial Coaching Lab is a hands-on program where corporate participants learn how to guide teams on their innovation journey. Equipped with a tailored set of coaching tools and techniques, they directly apply what they learn.

Nils Garrelfs, Chief Operating Officer at sauer charging, about the benefits:

UnternehmerTUM educates ambassadors who build bridges between the corporate and the start-up world. Benefits are immense for both sides.

In the Business Design Deep Dive, our corporate partners set a challenge and receive a variety of business ideas from outstanding entrepreneurial talents who are supported by experienced innovation coaches.

Dr. Alexander Schlüter, Venture Manager E.ON Future Lab, recounts his experience:

Having the opportunity to collaborate with UnternehmerTUM and their excellent scholars is one of the things we love at E.ON’s Future Lab. The students impressed us with their professional approach and exceptional motivation.
