Imagine the expertise and experience of three leading international universities based in Munich...
...working together with their innovation and entrepreneurship centers,
...to bring international teams and talent to Munich.
...In Munich, they connect talent and teams with their strong regional and international networks to form a shared impact-driven ecosystem where disruptive innovations of tomorrow can grow.
This is the Munich Global Impact Hub (MGIH).
The three Munich universities Technische Universität München (TUM), Hochschule München University of Applied Sciences (HM) and Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München (LMU) have been awarded the contract to design and implement the Munich Global Impact Hub (MGIH) as part of the EXIST-Potentiale program of the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Climate Protection (BMWK).
The aim of the "EXIST-Potentiale" program is to implement a visible and activating start-up culture at universities and to create necessary framework conditions for innovative and high-growth start-ups from science in order to create sustainable jobs in the region in the medium term.
We want to use all our strengths to advance Munich on its way to becoming a globally visible, start-up-driven and impact-oriented ecosystem. That is why we are committed to the sustainable and ambitious further development of Munich's ecosystem together with long-standing partners.
MGIH supports entrepreneurial, international talents on their way through the Munich Ecosystem in a six-month program and serves as an important interface for innovation and entrepreneurship in the Munich region. Based on MUC SUMMIT 's experience in managing the Munich Innovation Ecosystem, MUC SUMMIT was selected as the ecosystem integrator to coordinate the activities of the three universities.
The three major colleges and universities in Munich:
work together with their innovation and entrepreneurship centers
and together create a strong, regional and impact-driven network to enable disruptive innovation.
Both the Munich Global Impact Hub (MGIH) as well as the Start for Future Alliance are funded and supported by the EXIST Potentials program of the Federal Ministry of Economics and Climate Protection (BMWK).
Start for Future is an initiative of HM, SCE and their joint international partner network to connect international talents, ideas and startups with the regional ecosystem and to further internationalize Munich within the MGIH on its way to becoming a global Tech & Impact Hub.
With the support of our ecosystem integrator MUC Summit, we are building and continuously developing a shared ecosystem in Munich. In this way, impact-oriented ideas and international teams and startups can flourish to create a more global impact with a strong regional network of partners, experts and coaches. To achieve this, MGIH is working with other higher education institutions, civil society organizations, government organizations and industry partners to strengthen Munich's position as a startup and innovation hub and key hub in the international entrepreneurial ecosystem and to jointly create a holistic, connected and unique ecosystem to make the SDGs a reality.
A joint Advisory Board provides advice and support to the MGIH. The Advisory Board can be found here on the MGIH page of our Ecosystem Integrators MUC Summit. As part of the https://www.munich-innovation-ecosystem.com/mgihub
Together we make Munich the fastest growing imapct & tech hub in Europe.
