Starting your business

‘Where innovation starts’ is the TU/e slogan not without good reason. If it is going to have an impact on people and society, the knowledge that is gained has to ‘land’ somewhere. For some thirty years, therefore, we have been initiating and facilitating spin-off companies. The result is more than 150 technology companies, including well-known successes such as Prodrive, Coosto, Xeltis, EmulTech and Flowid.

Next Move: the entrance for starting and growing companies
Each year the university produces more than thirty knowledge-intensive start-ups, founded by inventive staff or enterprising students, in partnership with external parties in Brainport. To help these new companies through the fragile initial period, TU/e Innovation Lab and the partners with whom it closely collaborates, like Next Move, take care to ensure a proper business development process. And the indispensable start-up capital, for example, via the regional cooperative Bright Move. In addition to advice, supervision and help in attracting financing, we offes technology start-ups space for work and research. This creates a lively start-up community on the campus. If you would like to find out more, contact TU/e Innovation Lab or Next Move.
