MAFINEX Gründerverbund Entrepreneur Rhein-Neckar eV

The Gründerverbund’s objective is to initiate and support the founding of innovative start-ups from students and young entrepreneurs. The assistance of the Gründerverbund covers four different areas:

1. Advice and support start-up projects through providing incubators and granting access to a large network of members from university and different industries

2. Provide Training through an annual entrepreneurship bootcamp and various workshops

3. Support participation in competitions, e.g. in the national strategic planning simulation PrimeCup, or in the statewide business plan competition NewBizCup

4. Offer financial support through a programme, which proportionally refunds costs associated with start-up activities (e.g. patent and legal advice or attending conferences)

 

Students from the University of Mannheim can seek advice from the ‘Mannheim Centre for Entrepreneurship and Innovation’ (MCEI) and will gain more information at www.gruenderverbund.info.

 

Besides the MCEI, the following partner universities offer incubators of the MAFINEX Gründerverbund Rhein-Neckar:

- Popakademie Baden-Württemberg GmbH

- Institute of Applied Research of the University of Mannheim

- Gründerzentrum at the University of Applied Sciences Heidelberg e.V.

- Heilbronn University

Additionally the MCEI cooperates with the MAFINEX Technology Centre in Mannheim and the Heilbronn Innovation Factory.

EXIST is a support program of the Bundesministerium for Business and Technology (BMWi). The goal of the program is to improve the entrepreneurial spirit at universities and other research institutes.

Be part of the Olympic Games of the German start-up scene!
After an opening weekend with two intensive days filled with practical workshops, the 4-week-long competition among the founding teams starts.

Who manages to win the first customers? Who generates the most revenue? Which team has the most inspiring vision?

The event welcomes entrepreneurs having started their own business or being interested in starting their own business. A perfectly defined business idea is not a requirement to participate. Who has real intentions concerning starting up should check-in and join the Olympics kick-off on March 9 and 10 2013 in Berlin instead of talking about vague plans. Make it happen! 

Idea Camp is an initiative which was founded by former students of ours. Chek the followiing link to register: http://startup-olympics.de/
