For Startups

The Cube 5 service is particularly useful in the early phase of technology-based startups. As part of the ‘Liftoff’, selected teams receive individualised coaching and mentoring and the opportunity to present themselves with their own stand at the job fair for students – the ‘ITS.Connect’. In addition, Cube 5 provides advice on ‘StartUpSecure’, the BMBF’s funding programme, arranges contact persons from the local ecosystem and offers the opportunity to network with other founders* and students with its ‘Cybersecurity Founder Meetup’.
