What is START Erlangen-Nürnberg e.V.?

START Erlangen-Nürnberg e.V. is a student initiative of the Friedrich-Alexander university of Erlangen-Nürnberg which promotes entrepreneurial and innovative thinking and acting in an academic environment. Through projects and events like the START scholarship and the openspace, we support and inform students from all faculties who are interested in founding. Thereby, we try to present the topics company start-up and self-employment as attractive future perspectives to the students.


With the help of START and our Networking events, you will not only get in touch with a lot of start-ups, accelerators and of course our sponsors, you will even work together with them and thereby establish your first contacts for your future career.
