Center for Entrepreneurship Düsseldorf

Welcome to CEDUS

The Center for Entrepreneurship Düsseldorf (CEDUS) at Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf is committed to a vibrant, collaborative start-up culture - both here at the university and in the region. Whether in our office hours or a speedback session, whether in a classic start-up consultation or at one of our numerous events: We are your contact for all questions about self-employment and starting a business.

In order to prepare you optimally for your start-up, the curriculum of the Chair of Business Administration, in particular Entrepreneurship and Financing, here at the HHU, is also a good choice.

Furthermore, we are part of the Gründungsnetzwerk Düsseldorf and many other industry networks and cooperate with regional partners who support your start-up project as experts.
