The Elements4Founding x Cluster of Excellence Start-Up Talk will take place on July 3. At the event, the Elements4Founding team will present support opportunities through the University of Stuttgart for prospective startup teams, followed by founders of two selected high-tech startups presenting themselves and their activities and answering questions. A great opportunity for direct exchange with the founders and other scientists interested in founding a company!

This time, the Stuttgart-based high-tech start-ups roboloon and MESHPARTS are taking part:

roboloon develops solar-powered airship drones for the autonomous inspection of infrastructure. The five-member founding team has the vision to create "a sustainable and peaceful robotics ecosystem in aviation that anyone can ask for help at the push of a button". As a TGU, Roboloon is part of the Technology Transfer Centre and the Institute of Flight Mechanics and Aircraft Control (IFR) and is funded by the EXIST-Gründerstipendium, among others.

MESHPARTS was also funded as a TGU and by the EXIST-Gründerstipendium and was spun off from the Institute for Control Engineering of Machine Tools (ISW) in 2013. The company has developed an innovative finite element simulation software for the structural dynamic simulation of assemblies. Already in 2016, the software solution has, according to the founding team, "reached a maturity that allows an unprecedented ease of working with large mechanical assemblies as well as fast and reliable results."

We look forward to welcoming the founders to frei[raum]!

The Start-Up Talk is organised by the project team Elements4Founding of the Institute for Entrepreneurship and Innovation Research (ENI), together with the Clusters of Excellence IntCDC and SimTech and the Innovation Campus Mobility. All scientists of the networks who are interested in the topic of founding are invited.

We ask for informal registration by e-mail via e4f@eni.uni-stuttgart.de by June 30.
