As the Startup Dock, we have been supporting innovative startups from the university sector since 2013. Our headquarters are located in the Harburg inland port. Our origin lies at the Technical University of Hamburg.

Our mission: We advise and accompany students, scientists and alumni, universities and research institutions in the realisation of their technology-oriented and innovative business ideas.
Each start-up undergoes an individual consulting and qualification program. When teams are included in our programme, we call it "docking", we provide them with know-how, contacts, resources and a lively community of like-minded founders over a period of up to 18 months. The aim is to systematically promote our start-ups from the initial idea to market entry.
The process that start-ups go through at the startup dock in the early phase of a start-up helps them to establish themselves on the market.

Advice

Within the scope of our 1:1 support by our experienced consultants, docked start-ups are supported with questions and problems relevant to start-ups.

Qualification

At the SD Academy, docked startups meet leading experts from science and business. In tailor-made workshops, we impart know-how relevant to start-ups - always with the aim of making our teams fit for the market.

Funding

In order to support start-ups in the difficult initial phase, there are a number of funding programmes and financial assistance from the Federal Government, the Länder and the EU. Together with the "docked" start-up teams, our start-up consultants evaluate whether the application requirements have been met and support them in the application process.

Space

Within the framework of the EXIST-Founder Scholarship, we provide you with your own office free of charge. You also have access to meeting rooms, our prototype workshop and the FabLab@TUHH. In individual cases, we can offer docked teams rooms without EXIST funding.
