Make ideas work.
Welcome to Gateway Excellence Start-up Center. We are your partner for consulting and coaching in all aspects of founding and start-ups.
We support more than 35 start-up teams at the University of Cologne: B2B, B2C, social start-ups, consumer goods and tech start-ups. Our focus is on the knowledge- and technology-based concepts.
We provide our start-ups not only with advice and support from our start-up coaches and mentors. They are also offered workplaces at two of our incubator locations.
