Further funding for start-up centers

"Universities are nuclei of innovative start-ups and develop into drivers of regional start-up ecosystems" says Prof. Dr. Andreas Pinkwart, Minister of Economic Affairs and Digitalization NRW.

We are proud to be recommended for further funding until 2025 as part of the RWTH Aachen University Exzellenz Start-up Center NRW. This shows the government's trust in Collective Incubator to continue scaling while giving us confidence and financial backing for upcoming endeavors!

We will put these funds into good use, enhancing our offers of free and accessible coworking space, a hightech prototyping workshop and expert trainings for local startups.

We are grateful to work together with RWTH Innovation and our partners BMW Group, Deutsche Bahn, SAP, Utimaco and many more to become one of the largest tech incubators in Europe and make NRW one of the TOP10 startup regions worldwide!
