What is Culture of Entrepreneurship?

A culture of entrepreneurship is more a presence of entrepreneurial spirit permeating all aspects of the university: all the faculties, the campus, the university administration. A continuous willingness to recognise entrepreneurial opportunities, to value them - and in a best case scenario - also to implement them, characterises an academic culture of entrepreneurship.

EXIST Potentials

The new programme "EXIST-Potentials" supports German universities and their entrepreneurial networks in further developing a sustainable, university-based culture of entrepreneurship. It is part of the funding initiative of the German Ministry of Economic Affairs and Energy "EXIST-Culture of Entrepreneurship".
