Start-up support: THE LÄND’s medium-sized universities perform very well

The ranking „Gründungsradar 2022“ shows: The quality of start-up support at institutions of higher education (HEIs) in the German Southwest is good.

In the recently published „Gründungsradar 2022“, a ranking by Stifterverband which examines and compares the quality of start-support at German HEIs, Baden-Württemberg’s universities achieved excellent grades in the category of medium-sized universities (5,000-15,000 students). Among the 76 participating HEIs of that size, four Baden-Württemberg universities made it to the top ten:

- Hochschule der Medien which teaches media specialists (second place)

- University of Applied Sciences Aalen (third place)

- University of Applied Sciences Mannheim (sixth place)

- University of Applied Sciences Reutlingen (eighth place)

In the category of big universities (over 15,000 students), two HEIs from THE LÄND were among the top ten
(Karlsruhe Institute of Technology and University of Stuttgart) and in the category of small universities (less than 5,000 students) the SRH Hochschule Heidelberg was listed among the ten best.
