Teaching and further training

The University of Stuttgart puts on events and projects for students and scientists to familiarize them with the idea of starting up their own business. This way, they learn the key skills required of an entrepreneur and get their first experience with startups.

Just like becoming an Olympic athlete, no one is born to create their own start-up. But with motivation, subject knowledge and training, as well as the opportunity to gain experience, everybody can develop their entrepreneurial skills.

With the “Let US start!” project, which is supported by the Vector Foundation, as well as various teaching events, the University of Stuttgart offers a variety of courses to better acquaint students with entrepreneurial spirit and behavior. These projects are designed to showcase starting your own business as an attractive career option to students and to convey the key entrepreneurship skills needed in the 21st century.
