What Our Alumni Say About Us

“START Erlangen-Nuremberg offered me the foundation for my current network in the startup scene. With this base, I built a tech startup, the Berlin startup association Gründermagnet, and one of the largest tech incubators in Germany (www.zollhof.de). If you're looking for makers, co-founders and friends, START is the perfect place to go.”

Benjamin Bauer
CEO Zollhof

"START was THE spot at the university for me to connect with other people interested in starting a business. During my time, I was particularly impressed by how many people I met who had actually implemented something (and were good at it) instead of just talking. And also to dive further into the startup world and the whole mindset. Besides, such an office at the university is not to be underestimated :) So if you have an idea or at least would like to implement one, START is the right place for you!"

Fabian Raum
CEO & Co-Founder WINGMAN

"START Erlangen-Nuremberg is the association in Franconia in which students think and act entrepreneurially together. With Ambi-Vation, we now connect companies and startups for joint innovation development. At START Erlangen-Nuremberg I gained entrepreneurial experience, met nice people and expanded my network. I also met my later co-founder of Ambi-Vation as a board member at START Erlangen-Nuremberg in the association."

Christoph Baier
CEO Ambivation

"START Erlangen-Nuremberg was the essential trigger in my life, which shaped me through useful contacts, insane events and a unique community. The people in this organization drive each other every day to perform at their best. If you want to expand your horizon and build a network (or just have fun in a student initiative), START is the place to be."
