No other city in Germany has as diverse a science and research landscape as Berlin. Many of the numerous universities, universities of applied sciences and arts, and research institutions present here provide support for startups from within their own ranks. To give the entities that support these startup activities an opportunity for regular dialogue and joint public presentation, B!GRÜNDET, the startup network of Berlin’s higher education institutions, was launched in July 2005. Profund Innovation is regularly involved in joint projects. The network’s partners include not only the higher education institutions in Berlin, but also the Leibniz Association, IBB Business Team GmbH. Together, the members also operate the job portal “Stellenticket B!GRÜNDET,” where academic startups can advertise for founding partners and employees.
