Current Teams of the Start-up League

In addition to open start-up consulting, there is also admission to an exclusive start-up community, the Start-up League. We support students, alumni, employees and professors of the Munich University of Applied Sciences, as well as selected external start-up teams free of charge in the development and implementation of their business idea. Our goal is to use our experience and the SCE network to offer you help on the path to market entry, applying for grants and obtaining funding.

The Start-up League includes a number of intensively mentored start-up teams supported under HM and SCE specific funding programs (Start-up Certificate, eBridge and DICA) or public funding programs (EXIST, FLÜGGE and KickStart@HM of the BMBF). These selected teams are supported on their way as successful founders with qualified consulting, coaching, workshops, networking and, depending on the funding program, also with workspace in the incubator and material resources. Every year, the incubator supports numerous start-ups from a wide range of industries on their way to market. Students, professionals or founders without a university background are more than welcome with their innovative start-up projects. Apply for one of our support programs to become part of our start-up community!

Eko-Logical

Industry: Production and Manufacturing

Eko-Logical – More fantastic then plastic

Eko-Logical is inventing an innovative manufacturing process of wooden straw production to serve as an alternative for plastic straws that are banned by European Union regulation. Our solution is a very efficient innovative machine for wooden straw production. We make straws from scrap wood. Not harming any trees in the process. From the amount of one tree we can produce over a million straws. Because of the way we make straws, each one of our straws will look unique. Out of 100M straws that get consumed every day 60% make up plastic straws, meaning there is a demand created for additional 60M straws. Besides the demand, we also see an increase in shopping preference for eco-friendly products.
