Venture Service

HU’s Venture Service is jointly administered by Humboldt-Innovation GmbH (HI) and the Research Service Centre (Servicezentrum Forschung, SZF) and supports students, researchers and alumni of Humboldt-Universitaet with establishing their own research-based startup. More than 65 startups and 550 new jobs have been created since the Venture Service began its work in 2005.

Prospective entrepreneurs are advised by HU’s consultants and can find more information on the university’s website of the Venture Service.

Humboldt-Innovation supports teams that have secured funding through the EXIST scheme and those who have already founded their startup company. An entrepreneurs’ cooperation contract, administered by HI, allows teams to utilise the university’s and the Venture Service’s resources even after the creation of the company.
