Start-up Incubation Program

At the center of our activities, we offer a start-up support program for founders with a digital business model. The free and structured 12-week incubation program leads in a hypothesis-driven approach to finding the problem-solution fit. The program is specially designed to meet early-stage start-ups’ needs. The structure uses agile principles, guides the founders, and provides them with helpful resources. Participants receive insights from experts belonging to the HHL network and partners to equip you for a successful founders journey. The program is accompanied by supporting events such as Founders Talks, Market Day, and the final Launch Day. Find out more about our incubation program and application criteria here.
