What’s in for you?

Together with teams from all around the globe, you will be able to attend a collaborative process, integrating you into Munich’s unique innovation ecosystem. Together with the Impact Readiness Program, the hub offers multiple virtual events that will enable and equip you with the necessary mindset, toolset, and network to co-create and accelerate your impact-driven ideas.

The LMU IEC Impact Readiness Program aligns with the Munich Global Impact Hub, an initiative led by three Munich-based universities: Munich University of Applied Sciences (MUAS), Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität (LMU) Munich, and Technical University of Munich (TUM). The Munich Global Impact Hub aims to be a vibrant and thriving community for innovation and entrepreneurship in the regional Munich ecosystem.

The universities are supported by their respective innovation and entrepreneurship centers: Strascheg Center for Entrepreneurship (SCE), LMU Innovation and Entrepreneurship Center (LMU IEC), and UnternehmerTUM. MUC Summit GmbH has been commissioned to act as an ecosystem integrator. The universities are committed to partnering with other higher education institutions worldwide to strengthen Munich’s position as a key player in the international entrepreneurial ecosystem.

The LMU IEC Impact Readiness Program and the Munich Global Impact Hub are funded and supported by the EXIST-Potentials program of the Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Action (BMWK).
