In the tu>startup LOUNGES...

...students and alumni interested in entrepreneurship meet entrepreneurs, exchange ideas and make valuable contacts. Participation in the tu>startup LOUNGES is free of charge. Every year, around four such networking events take place with different focus topics. tu>startup is the TU Dortmund University's start-up initiative, which is awarded and funded as part of the competition "EXIST-Gründungskultur: Die Gründerhochschule" (EXIST Start-up Culture: The Start-up University) by the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology.

You can find current dates under the Startup-Homepage.

Making the project's offerings family-friendly is a major concern of tu>startup. In cooperation with the Faculty of Cultural Studies, the project therefore offers childcare during events, especially during "Kita-Randzeiten". Student teachers work intensively with the children in an adjoining room.  For further information and to register their children for the childcare programme, interested parents should contact the project leader at the following address Angela Märtin.
