of startup projects

You have an innovative startup project and are looking for funding or startup capital for the implementation of your startup idea?

The supervisors in the CEDUS team help to identify suitable funding programs and mediate financing options as well as investors during the process of setting up an enterprise. They connect entrepreneurs to funding institutions, banks, business angels and venture capital organizations.

In addition to state and federal funding programs, the Heinrich Heine University offers additional financing options for HHU startup projects. For technology-based startups, regional and national seed funds for external seed capital are also available.

Participation of TTHU GmbH

Via its subsidiary TTHU GmbH, the HHU can participate in its university spin-offs.

TTHU GmbH fundamentally strives to secure an initial participation in a spin-off and in return receives shares in the company or a share of turnover or profit. It generally acts as a minority shareholder.

Other seed financing then takes place, for example, through the High-Tech Gründerfonds and/or the Sirius Seedfonds Düsseldorf.

External Financing
