Student Accelerator Robotics and Automation

Short description

Starting in summer semester 2022, imes will take over the tutorial "Student Accelerator Robotics and Automation (SARA)", in which students can gain their first realistic experience in the area of spin-offs/start-ups in self-selected teams. You will be taught the basics of business plans and company presentations and develop your business idea in the field of engineering in close cooperation with your supervisor and external professionals from the field of entrepreneurship. If your team is convincing in the first pitch and thus reaches the second round, you will receive €4,000 per team to implement a first (software or hardware) prototype. Ideally, this tutorial will guide you through usually two semesters until you apply for an EXIST-Gründerstipendium funded by the federal government (BmWi). You can find all the information on Stud.IP.
