Support excellence

The transfer and start-up concept of the Worldfactory Start-up Center

The 32-member team at the WSC is working towards a common goal: We want to strengthen the start-up culture at Ruhr-Universität Bochum and facilitate more spin-offs from the university! The potential is great, but knowledge and technology-based start-ups require special skills and customised consulting approaches.

 

This is at the core
of our concept:
