Lower Saxony Start-up Scholarship

Students, (academic) staff and alumni of the University of Hildesheim can apply for the Lower Saxony Start-up Grant from the NBank with the support of the Competence Centre for Entrepreneurship and Transfer (KET) as an accompanying institution.

The start-up grant supports founders with innovative, digital or knowledge-oriented ideas who want to start up in Lower Saxony. It ensures the livelihood of individuals as well as start-up teams (up to three people) for a maximum of eight months.

A prerequisite for application has now been fulfilled through accreditation in association with the regional economic development agency HI-REG. As an accompanying institution, KET provides, among other things, premises during the funding period, supports with a mentor and enables intensive coaching. The offer is supplemented by HI-REG: the scholarship holders can take advantage of its advisory services on specific topics and participate in qualification measures.
