Universities are a time for students to learn, to have fun and, at Jacobs University, to create a business. We believe that students should not have to choose between getting a degree and pursuing an entrepreneurial idea. We believe students can do both. That's why at Jacobs University we support our students to pursue their entrepreneurial ambitions, a unique opportunity to foster real innovation.
COLLABORATION WITH COMPANIES
Of course, a business idea will only succeed if it manages to cross Jacobs' boundaries. Therefore, students are encouraged and supported to get in touch with companies and other potential partners to realize their entrepreneurial ambitions. We achieve this through mentoring, collaborations with companies or investors.
Companies are also encouraged to approach us with a concrete or approximate idea for collaboration. Does your company have a problem but no solution? Our students might have the solution or the ability to come up with one!
Our diverse range of study programs in science, technology, and the humanities means that our students often have innovative solutions to major global problems. Often, bringing these ideas to production or testing requires a large amount of capital. That's why we work with investors who want to support breakthrough and innovative ideas.
