At the beginning of every foundation, there is always an idea, which represents the core of every entrepreneurial activity. Our Learn & Connect offer provides students and researchers who are interested in establishing a start-up business with the opportunity to learn from many of the most successful people both at our events and as part of our community on collӕb, the central platform for the Aachen Entrepreneurship community. The experienced team at the RWTH Innovation Entrepreneurship Center supports people interested in starting a business in proven coaching formats with the realization of their own ideas and helps with the identification and analysis of potentials.
Our Learn & Connect offer also serves as a stepping stone to our further coaching offerings. If you find yourself inspired to develop an idea towards a viable business model and apply for a funding program, then take the next steps in your entrepreneurial journey and join our Ideation Program.
Code of Conduct for the involvement of RWTH members in founding activities
As in all areas of the university, RWTH observes legal regulations and extra-legal rules of conduct in its support of founders. In this sense, the Code of Conduct for the involvement of RWTH members in founding activities refers to existing laws, principles of conduct and guidelines for university members and summarizes them for simplification. In addition, the Code of Conduct applies to all those who undertake start-up support on behalf of RWTH. The aim of these regulations is to ensure the greatest possible freedom of choice for RWTH founders in their demand for advice, collaboration and financing, in accordance with applicable law and internal rules of conduct, while ensuring the greatest possible transparency in university-driven support services.
