TU concept GmbH

Creation Of New Concepts, Expansion & Participation in Transfer

TU concept GmbH is a subsidiary of the Technical University of Dortmund and, in addition to the Center for Entrepreneurship & Transfer (CET) and the Stiftung Dortmunder Hochschulen, another mainstay of startup promotion and knowledge transfer.

Our goal is to sustainably support and strengthen business and science by promoting cooperation and transfer between universities, research institutions and industry.

Therefore, the Technical University of Dortmund has decided to handle all economic activities in the environment of startup support exclusively via the TU concept GmbH in order to clearly separate the economic business from the supported non-economic activities of the CET, as well as to thereby also ensure the sustainability of the offers of the CET independent of funding.

Our Vision



# In order to promote synergies and innovations, TU concept brings together the science of TU Dortmund University with the economy of the entire region.


# We support companies (SMEs) in the systematic development of tomorrow's innovations - from the idea to implementation.


# German universities are to benefit from the expertise of an Excellence Start-up Center and EXIST start-up support at TU Dortmund.
