Worldfactory International bundles the RUB’s entire international start-up activities. In collaboration with our regional and international project and network partners, we offer a variety of services for international junior researchers who wish to set up their own businesses and for international start-ups.
The annual RuhrSummit is the largest B2B start-up event in Germany. Joining forces with ruhr:HUB, we have integrated additional services for international start-ups and other parties interested in setting up their own business into the RuhrSummit, in order to provide various formats designed to help them establish contacts with companies, investors and the region’s ecosystem.
During the two-week training programme, international young scientists, students and/or teams interested in setting up a business prepare the implementation of innovative business ideas with the support of experienced experts and start-up coaches at RUB. The Bootcamp has a modular structure and outlines all aspects for successful business model, team and product development.
Participants also gain insights into the regional start-up ecosystem through site visits in the region and meetings with successfully established start-ups.
Towards the end of the Bootcamp, the participants pitch their business ideas. The winners will receive support for the development of their business model and an implementation plan for technology transfer with a minimal time to market.
In order to explore and refine the transfer potential of their own research, RUB researchers are given the opportunity to invite international scientists with a strong interest in start-ups resp. application-oriented scientists to RUB, in order to strengthen and expand collaborations and initiate joint transfer projects in tailor-made visitor programmes.
Our start-up consultants are happy to help if you have any questions regarding the internationalisation of business models and the establishment of international start-ups.
