The Tech Incubator of HHL

HHL Leipzig Graduate School of Management is a university-level institution and ranks amongst the leading international business schools. The goal of the oldest business school in German-speaking Europe is to educate entrepreneurial, responsible and effective business leaders. HHL stands out for its excellent teaching, its clear research focus, its effective knowledge transfer into practice as well as its outstanding student services. More than 300 companies were set up by alumni of HHL. The most well-known examples include the unicorns (startups with a valuation of more than $1bn) trivago, AboutYou, Delivery Hero, Auto1 and IONIQ.
To share this expertise and broad network, HHL set up the HHL DIGITAL SPACE as an open platform and incubator to support entrepreneurs not only for their own students and partners but for everyone with a digital business model.
