- Dr. Eric Veulliet, President of the Weihenstephan-Triesdorf University of Applied Sciences

Use of the required infrastructure

For the development and production of your food, we offer you more than 1,000 square meters of laboratory and pilot plant space for the production of liquid, solid or powdered food.

Additionally, we give you access to coworking spaces and meeting rooms.

Founding students of Weihenstephan-Triesdorf University of Applied Sciences of all study programs as well as all employees have free access to the entire infrastructure.

Food startups have the opportunity to gain access via a user agreement.

Imparting the required expertise

As a student interested in founding a company, you can acquire the necessary expertise in the field of entrepreneurship in modules. For external students we currently offer an academy program. An international certificate program for food startups will be launched in 2024. Those interested in founding a company from agriculture, gastronomy or crafts are also very welcome.

We support food startups in accelerator programs together with the Strascheg Center (SCE) at Munich University of Applied Sciences.

Free access to the basic knowledge needed for food development, production as well as marketing and sales is offered to all interested parties within the framework of the online courses on our Knowledge Hub.

Financial support

We support student start-up teams with in-kind scholarships for product development and the establishment of pilot production.

We support innovative start-up teams interested in applying for an Exist start-up grant. If the application is successful, we then provide the founding teams with laboratories, technical center facilities and workplaces for the project phase.

As a food startup , you can get support through accelerator programs.

In addition, we give you access to capital through our network of business angels and investors.
